Right now I have about 40 roses, and I plan to have about 40 more before spring ends. I need recommendation for something that I can put in a pump sprayer, that will not only keep these god forsaken bugs off, it will hopefully keep them disease free also. I'm very prone to black spot here. I don't have a preference as to whether it's organic or heavy chemical, as long as it works. You all have been super helpful, and I'm Hopeing you can help me one more time! Bonus points if I can easily pick it up from a big box store today!

Systemic stuff it feeds and kills bugs. Applied to ground. I'm not sure if it works on black spot. Check label. Thumbs up
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Just be careful, because some of the systemics can be toxic to bees.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I ended up with organticide today. The employee at lowes was very helpful and spoke highly of it, so fingers crossed it works. Thank y'all for your suggestions.

Looks like it might be safe for bees when used correctly. Good luck. Crossing Fingers! Thumbs up
