But I tell you, I not only found them on my roses and grapevines, but since they pretty much munched all that I am actually finding them on my Marigolds which surprised me because I thought the smell would deter them from those...
I saw them on my marigolds this year...squash bugs too. So much for deterrence!
I am thinking once their favorites are chomped up, like roses and grapevines they get a bit desperate this time of year near the end of their season.
BTW, 24 today....at least out of the 40`s!
Now maybe my roses can have buds without them inside and leaves that are not chewed to shreds.
They ate your leaves? They were on my knockout rose blooms only... and either eating or mating...often both in the same bloom. Each bloom had anywhere from 1 to 8. I'd had enough and just started a twice daily crush-a-thon. Made a pretty good dent...HUNDREDS in any crushing event.
