I am looking for a little help identifying some eggs on my wild rose plant.

Lately it and my currents have been plagued by pests. I noticed these new eggs today. I was hoping they might have been ladybug eggs, but, after a quick google, I no longer believe that to be the case.

I seem to have holes and nets across quite a few buds. I'm thinking these might belong to the culprit!

Any help would be appreciated 🙂

The two most common rose cane borers are actually small wasps.

Luke, this is not a cane borer. I would recommend removing the eggs. I do know the pest but can't remember the name. This problem was discussed on the rose forum. I have these issues on my roses. Now, nets, would that be webs? Many tiny garden spiders will put their webs on roses to catch their prey. I have tiny webs on many of my garden plants. Spiders are good guys in the garden, for the most part. I usually leave them alone.
