This is a follow up from an earlier post. I'm just a little slow getting the pictures posted.

Wow, and I thought my recent episode was galling.

Here is a link that might be useful: Garden Musings blog on Rose Gall

I haven't experienced that here YET. Does that mean the plant is a goner?

They made me shudder too, Seil, so much, I had to allow DH to do the pruning. When he found out what they were, he wanted to get out the gasoline and light a match.

floridarose, I decided we'd prune it down and see what happens next year. I'm afraid they may have already hatched by the time we got them pruned. SO SICK! I guess if the plant is a goner so be it, but I have quite a few in the back and front yard. I guess I'll find out next year.

Jessicabe, If they are that smart, I'm VERY afraid. I probably shouldn't have read that because I've already had bad dreams about those things.

Yep, as soon as I spy the 1st tick of the season, I'm constantly feeling one crawl on me even in the middle of the night. The creepy thing is, I have found them on me in the middle of the night. Hopefully, being hyper-sensitive and sleepless will save me from limes disease.
