Please help--Rose Midge damage?
Please advise. One of my roses has been ailing and I finally started researching the symptoms. Most new growth wilts and shrivels up. My other roses are setting big flushes and this bush has just one tiny bud.
It sounds like rose midges are terrible pests, very difficult to eradicate. Therefore, I'd like to be very sure before I start using chemicals. I've attached a photo. Does this look like midge damage? What is the best way to control them?
My sincere thanks,
