That's the sort of thing that could be rose midge damage, but they are usually not severe in the early season--only a few survive the winter.

Please add your state and climate zone to your signature. Rose midge has a limited range. Also eastern zone 7 and thereabouts had a severe late frost in mid-April that would cause that type of damage. I had to do a lot of re-pruning.

Rose midge is already doing damage in my zone 5 garden. Guess the winter didn't kill the little bastards as I'd hoped. And yes, this does look like rose midge.
