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.

Do you know the aphids are harmful for roses?

Beautiful photo! Aphids are extremely annoying and difficult to get rid of.
A stunning rose. I’ve heard that ants are the cause of lice.
Yes I did know this, I am learning about roses since I have a rose bush in my garden. Still a nice photo.
I didn’t doubt you knew! You are a rose lover!
Nice post. Thanks for sharing
Thank you for the comment!
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.
Thank you, Elenka! If needed I will use this recipe.
