Answer: growing roses
roses are among the most loved plants, which makes them very popular in cultivation; unfortunately, several parasites that attack them are also widespread, ruining them also irreparably.
The small 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 of it, quickly enough.
To eradicate them, it is necessary to use an insecticide by contact, or a product that must be sprayed directly on the larvae themselves.
You can also prevent the attack by using the large insecticide tablets to be inserted into the 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 generally sold in packs of 10 or 20 tablets, each lasting for a few months.
