Two weeks and one day ago, I sprayed my roses and cannas for the Leaf Beetle that was causing so much grief. I have the date circled and everything.
It rained yesterday so I couldnt spray and today is the 4th of July so last night I thought, ok Ill just spray on the 5th when I get home.They should be ok for a day.
I went out this morning and the beetles are back in force!!! One day after I was suppose to spray! They just dont play!
They ate all the blooms on my Don Juan, Chysler Imperial and Eurpenana. They really seem to like the red roses. They ate two off my Golden Masterpeice tree and one off my Hot Cocoa. Since my Knockout is covered in blooms, I didnt count the ones eatten but it was quite a few. If that wasnt enough! They had started munching on my orange and hot pink cannas!!
I sprayed today.

Oh heck I really hope now that you've sprayed again today that you can get those little blighters under control. What a mess they've made of your poor roses.
I would get some 7 dust 10% and stop them .I use it on anything hard to stop .I have butterfies everywhere and it doesn't seem to hurt .I use it only when needed.Things like those destroy to much to let them keep going.I'm sorry your roses were damaged.
They don't waste anytime do they *grrrr!*.
Oh i'm sorry about your roses.I hope you get rid of those pesty little things.Roses are just too pretty for those ugly little critters to make such a mess.
I'm soooo sorry about your roses and cannas Denee!!
