Answer: Hi Janet,

To control pests on roses such as aphids,spider mites, thrips and mealy bugs we would recommend Nature’s Way Mite & Insect Killer, Natrasoap. This is a low toxic, organic soap based spray that coats the insect causing it to suffocate and dry out.

If you are looking for a natural solution to controlling powdery mildew on your roses, you can mix 1 part full cream milk to 9 parts water and spray the leaves on a regular basis while the fungus is present.
