Please help, I'm so tired of these thrips, I can see them flying all around my roses and I've been treating for about 3 weeks now .. alternating with Neem oil and Bayer pest � do I really need to go and prune all buds off? I just hate cutting them all off.

Check the labels on your products and make sure it says it's for thrips. Otherwise you can either wait it out, they do have a season, or cut the buds.

I deeply sympathise with you. Had the same problem last fall when the drought started, and I found the yellow sticky traps could catch a lot of them, not all but a lot, you could give that a try. If you find out a better way to combat these little things please post it here.

An excellent control for thrips is Spinosad. You can buy the concentrated form from Rosemania as Conserve or get a more dilute product at your local garden shop. It's about as effective as you can get.
