My daily rose – Rose bud with a visitor

Due to the strong fragrance and special colors, rose is a living legend in the world of flowers.  That makes it loved by all of us. But, do not think that just us, people love the roses! They are equally loved by insects that we will always find hide among the petals of the roses. The presence of ants on roses can be correlated with the presence of the most common pests of roses, the aphids. So be careful if you see ants on roses! Look for aphids!

This is a picture I have taken in the summer.

“Those who don’t pick roses in summer won’t pick them in winter either.” – German Proverb

  1. I knew about aphids. Here is a very effective recipe.
    A 2 liter bottle, a syringe, 100 ml of fresh milk and 5 ml of iodine is needed. Combine the last two ingredients and mix. Transfer to the spray bottle and mix again and the solution ready for use.
