    These are the most annoying bugs that we've had to deal with. They go right after my roses. I'm hoping to learn something from this pin. Hope all is well with you & your enjoying your farm.

    Hi Jan, yes all is very well and we are enjoying the summer and not yet looking forward to cooler weather (last winter is still a very cold and vivid memory!) Sadly, I don't have any roses yet but these little buggers have been going after my vegetable garden.
