Aphids on roses

I found a severe infestation of aphids on some landscape roses this week. Aphids this early covering the buds could reduce the number and quality of blooms. I am not sure why the aphids attacked this bush so severely and so early  but folks should be on the lookout. I  have also seen a lot of other aphids this week on maples, Japanese maples, and other plants. You can check the aphid insect note for more management information. Image
