FAQs About Insects in Your Rose Garden
Q: Is a spider mite an insect or is it actually a spider?
A: Spider mites belong to a class called arachnids, to which spiders also belong. They are not actually insects. They do cause plenty of problems for plants, however, unlike their larger relatives.
Q: My plant leaves look chewed! Do you know what type of insect might do that?
A: Insects that have the ability to chew plants must have special cutters in their mouths for this purpose. Such insects may include caterpillars, beetles, and grasshoppers, for example.
Q: How do I know if my plant is being attacked by an insect or a disease?
A: If it’s an insect, the plant may have holes in its leaves. Turn the leaves over and you may see the insects themselves clustered on the underside of the leaves. You may also see and feel a sticky substance if it’s an insect because the insect will leave a secretion on the plant.
Q: My neighbor told me that I have scales on my ornamental plants. What is scale and how do I get rid of them?
A: Scale is tiny insects that attack plants, sucking the sap or juices from the plant and it's leaves. Insecticidal sprays and Neem Oil products are effective in controlling these pests.
