Answer: Hi Jenny,

Thanks for contacting Yates.

It looks like you have the leaf cutting bee causing this damage to your rose bush. This bee is a native bee that assists in the pollination of your flowers and vegetables.

They are a great addition to your garden regardless of the damage that they can cause. There is nothing that can be used to treat the bush for these bees rather just allow them to live in your garden and help pollinate your lovely plants!

Think about giving your roses a good feed to help them out with any additional stress using Thrive Roses and Flowers Liquid Plant Food.

Kind regards

Yates Horticulturalist
