My rose bushes have tiny holes in the leaves, somethings eating them. What is it, and what can I do? Thanks.

You'll need to figure out just what is eating the leaves before you can control them. Check the undersides of the leaves at several different times of the day until you find the culprits. Once you do, you can either hand pick them or use a control product that's safe for roses and specifically designed to control that particular pest. Neem oil based products such as Rose Defense control many different kinds of insect pests so that might be the best product to use. Best wishes with your roses.
