    tiny green worms

    I have tiny green worms on the leaves of the roses and I have never seen them before. I was wondering if they would be rose midges and if so how to get rid of them. They are eating the leaves.

    I've also had small green worms on my rose leaves, mostly in the late spring early summer. I just pick them off and squish them. Or you could try spraying the leaves with a combination of water, a few teaspoons of mouthwash and a few drops of dish soap.

     I believe they are leaf miners. Garden Safe insecticidal soap worked very well to get rid of them here.
