You can control mildew with a neem oil based product such as Rose Defense. If you follow label directions and time your sprays properly, lady bugs should be fine. An alternative is to prune out all of the infected plant parts and spray the roses with a baking soda/water or milk/water solution. Best wishes with your roses.
