Q.Cutworms on Rose plants

Zone bouldercombe | cheryl taylor added on October 2, 2016 | Answered

My rose plants have suddenly got a cutworm infestation. How do I get rid of them with natural aids, please? I am not fond of chemical sprays if I can help it. Not sure if I have inadvertently used dry mulch which has them as eggs on them.

Many thanks for any help.

Whether it be cutworms or rose slugs, for natural methods of controlling them, the best website I have found for natural methods or means is the one at this link: https://www.planetnatural.com/ They have many items that can be used to help gain control of the buggers that bug us in the garden! They could have come in with the mulch or could have come in by way of small moths that lay eggs in the mulch.
