Plagues of the Rosales II

Others will most common types of pests and diseases that can be found in the rose bushes are the following:

  • Snails and Slugs: it is important to learn to distinguish between these two types of pests, snails differ from slugs by their shell or shell, slugs have naked bodies. These types of pests feed on the leaves of your roses. It is more common to find them in rainy seasons and on wet nights and their presence can be noticed as they leave a silvery and slimy trail on the ground. To catch them without killing them, you can bury a beer bottle filled with water, they will be attracted by moisture.
  • White Worm: The white worm, unlike the other types of pests that we have seen that invade the leaves of the rose bushes, is a pest of the roots of the roses, they can weaken them and even kill them. Generally those who do the damage are the larvae of these animals, which feed on the roots of the rose bushes. To control these types of pests and eliminate their larvae, an insecticide must be applied to the worms that live directly in the soil.

  • Rose fly: this type of pest, also known as false rose caterpillars, is a very frequent pest, which feed on the leaves, gnawing them in an arc. To combat them, the leaves should be sprayed and an insecticide such as baytroid applied. However, you can consult a biological control specialist for advice on a natural way to combat them without applying chemicals to your roses and the soil where they have been planted.
