Rose Pests

Rose is susceptible to a number of disease and insect pests. Roses can survive without a basic pest control management, but they may not be very attractive. A pest control program starts with the proper identification of pests, good soil preparation, good drainage, proper spacing, cultivar selection, and plant maintenance. This will result in healthy roses that are better able to withstand the pressure of disease and insects.
