I live in Indianapolis IN zone 6 I think ..and there are holes in myknockout roses! they began as white spots, and now there are outright holes..there are small worms on the underside of the leaves, green in colorPlease help me!
I also have "holes" in the leaves & a few worms under the leaves. Some of the leaves on all three of my knockout rose bushes are showing white spots as well. What should I use to cure this?
I tried the flower and rose systemc by Bayer..this did not work.
I also tried Sevin, and the worms are falling off.Be careful using this product as it may harm some beneficial insects.
Sevin seems to be working after trying several organic products.
Be careful using this product as it may harm some beneficial insects, still the worms are falling off, and my roses look happier..also snip off the infected leaves and toss..it will get rid of a lot of the culprits.
Thanks, Marie! Yesterday I called two nurseries and I was told to use Insecticidal (sp=?) and one nursery was sold out so today I'll purchase it at the other place here in town. . .hope it works.
Ilive in Converse Indiana, 50 mi. north of Indy. I just sprayed the roses with lime sulfer. It is a more natural like insectiside, fungiside, mitiside. I am not sure what is eating holes in my 3 roses plants. If the lime sulfer works will let you know.
