Rose rosette

Gary E. Cummings added on May 5, 2016 | Answered

Most plants get food through the roots. I tried using Termite Killer and Miracle grow mixed in a gallon of water to kill the mites. It seemed to help the roses! Am I just dreaming or could it work? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS IDEA? Gary Cummings PO Box 2811 Salina, Kansas 67402

While your mix may help kill the mites that are thought to spread the virus, I do not see how it would actually cure the infected rosebushes of the disease. I would recommend you share your trial mix and information with the folks at this website.
