Answer: Hi Aysenur

Thank you for sending the photo. The damage is caused by a leaf eating bee. They chew pieces of leaf out to make nests in cracks in fence posts or between two bricks where the motar has fallen out. These bees are important pollinators so we don’t kill them. They will not do a lot of damage and what they have done will not harm your roses. Give your roses now some fertiliser e.g. Dynamic Lifter Plus Organic Plant Food which will help your plants to produce some new growth. Enjoy our beautiful roses.
