Dealing with Rose Slugs

Noticing holes in the leaves of your roses? The leaf damage you are seeing could be from what's called rose slug (also called sawfly). Look on the underside of the leaves. Do you see any tiny green inchworm looking critters? Rose slugs will chew the leaves of plants--leaving trails where they've munched through. 

Rose slugs won't be detrimental to the overall health of your Knock Out® Roses, so not to worry!  There is no need to spray or treat your roses, they will move on in a matter of days.
