Rose Slugs

Rose slugs are small 1/2 to 5/8-inch long, green worm-like insect and usually feeds on the underside of the leaf causing the damage. The adult is a sawfly which is a member of the bee family (how’s that for confusing?). This insect is not a true worm (moth or butterfly larva), therefore, it cannot be killed by using a Bt product.
