Question: Pests on roses


Hello, I would like to know the name of the insect that lays an egg in the jet of roses. The egg becomes a larva very similar to that of the meat fly (cagnotto, gianin) and kills the jet with its bud. Thanks Clement

Pest roses: Answer: Pests on roses


Dear user,
Thank you for contacting us about your Rose questions via the Expert's address book.
The presence of larvae very similar to those of the meat fly can be traced back to larvae of lepidoptera, a widespread problem.
These insects equipped with a sucking mouthparts can settle on all parts of the plants and in the specific case of the Rose on the buds preventing their closure.
Sincerely
