Rose-Mr Lincoln. One of the many roses from my rose gardens. Roses are one of my favorite flowers. This year, in the early spring, I noticed something was eating holes in my leaves. I have around fifty rose bushes in my gardens. I am use to a few bushes getting hit by some insect feasting on the leaves but this was happening to most of them. After inspecting the bushes, to my horror I found lantern fly nymphs on the branches. Our area has become quite infested by these destructive insects. I have tried many methods of eradicating them in my yard. I did notice my roses were not as productive blooming this year. Hopefully the damage done to them will not be permanent.
