What are the bugs on my roses?

amyflora(7 NC)April 29, 2009

Forgive me if I posted this before, but can anyone tell me the name of the bug that is on my roses? It has two things on its back end that look like pincers and it is brown. About half an inch long. Any ideas?

I not too good on identifying bugs, but check out this site. He has a lot of information on roses plus pictures of rose pest.

Sounds like a female or young earwig. My roses up in Ct used to get them so bad I stopped cutting roses to bring indoors.
