I have white bugs on my rose bushes and can NOT stand the smell or the chemicals of the spray. What is the natural ingredients to sprayon them?

    do the bugs crawl or fly? Are they on the top or the bottoms of the leaves? You can use a joy dish soap solution, but it will only kill some stuff on contact, it won't leave a residue and keep killing.

    sounds like it might be white flies. You can try using a soft brush vacuum early in the morning while it is cool (when they are most inactive),if you don't want to use a chemical spray. Put the vacuum on a low setting if you can so as not to damage the leaves of your plants. One of those hand held car vacs might work.

    There was a natural way to get rid of them. It was Dawn, water and something else. I just can NOT remember what it was.... The blooms are not coming all the way out because of these bugs. They Are green then they turn white.

    You may wish to plant mint around your rosebushes. I know it keeps aphids away.
