Blast with Water – Aphids may also be dislodged by a strong jet of water. Slugs & Snails. Slug damage on rose leaves. Beer – Pour an inch of beer into the bottom of an empty tuna or cat.   Aphids reproduce quickly leading to many generations in a single summer. Their preferred food is the sap found in the leaves and stems of your roses. The sap is especially prevalent in new growth so aphids will start feasting on that first. Once they have sucked out all of the available sap from your rose bush, they move on to another plant.

      Roses are one of the most popular perennial landscape plants. They thrive in warm summers, frequent rainfall, and moderate winters. Unfortunately, ample rainfall and warm summers are also favorable conditions for the growth of pests. The most common diseases that affect the growth of rose plants are aphids, black spots, powdery mildew and rose. Every rose has the future potential for disease and insect damage. Factors such as location and weather will play a part in which issues your tree encounters. Disease-resistant roses are the best option for easy care; and for all rose plants, proper maintenance (such as watering, fertilizing, pruning, spraying, weeding, and fall cleanup) can.

    Like with other aspects of weaning roses off chemicals it takes time for nature to restore the balance we’ve upset. So yes, the first season you may have more aphids than you care for. But over time this will balance itself out and while you’ll have some aphids the beneficial insects will keep a nice balance. This method of controlling powdery mildew is most effective when the fungus is just beginning to spread. Repeat the hosing every three to five days. (As an added bonus, hosing should also remove any aphids that have started to feed on your roses.) 1. Fertilizing.
