Little black worms on Roses!

pinkcarnation(z6 MI)May 23, 2006

Last year I had a small infestation of little green worms on my Roses, and learned from this forum that they were the larvae of Rose Sawfly. I used Safer insecticidal soap and it worked! This year my daughter has little BLACK worms on her Roses! Are these the same as the Rose Sawfly or something else????

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Could be something else, or the same, but it doesn't really matter. IS isn't bug-specific, it'll kill the little critters just the same, no matter what color they are.
