Is there a product that is both economical and effective at the same time? N Thank you

Answer: growing roses

Gentlie Rossella,

roses are among the most popular plants, which makes them very popular in cultivation; unfortunately, various parasites are also very widespread which attack them, even ruining them irreparably.

The little worms you tell us about could be the young larvae of small wasps commonly found in our gardens.

The larvae feed on the foliage, and also devour large quantities, quite quickly.

To eradicate them it is necessary to use a contact insecticide, that is a product that is sprayed directly on the larvae themselves.

You can also prevent it from attacking by using large insecticide tablets to put into pots, which dissolve every time you water the plant. This type of insecticide is used only in pots, as it remains in a limited area.

They are typically sold in packs of 10 or 20 tablets, each of which lasts for a few months.
