Bug eating rose bush, leaving behind a mess.

I have one rose bush which I constantly look after to protect it from aphids. However, I have recently moved from Blacksburg Va to Morgantown WV and now there are no aphids but it is being eaten by some kind of different bug. I never see any bugs on it but I come out each day to more devoured leaves and LOTS of tiny pellets of bug poop. I mean lots. The bush is off the ground (on my porch) so I can't help but wonder if it is a flying bug to get up to the bush in the container. Insecticidal soap didn't even slow the damage. Thoughts?

I expect that you are just overlooking the caterpillar.
