I just noticed that there are small caterpillars eating the leaves on my roses. Is there anything that I can use at home to get rid of them?

If you mean home mixes, I do not recommend those anymore as many of them if not mixed right will either burn the foliage, or do not good in helping with the problem. I would use some Ortho Bub-B-Gon that comes in a hose end sprayer and spray the roses down with that. The Bayer advanced spray that comes in the hose end sprayer will do the trick as well. There are also some sprayes made by Safer that do a good job and are more earth friendly.
