Whats this on My Rose ???
Looks like those alien ladybirds Jacque. I think the fear is that they will kill all our native ones, but shouldn't harm the plant in any way.

You sure, Mad? These look like eggs to me, and ladybird larvae, even the harlequin, doesn't look like this, well,I didn't think anyway. No idea what they are myself.
No idea what it is but I'd clean it off pronto Jacque
I would be pretty certain these are over wintering aphis. Rub off with a gloved hand as Moongrower says, pronto.
Thanx 4 all your Comments, Iv just Googled Ladybird & Ahpid Egg Pics & they do look like Aphids Eggs DoctorB Many Thanx every 1 Jacx
Off to kill then then Jacque
Yes in Morn MG when i can see them all as this was`nt only place on My Rose they were :(
Unless you aren't squeamish wear gloves... rubber washing up type ones are good!
Thanx MG iv some Plastic Disposables which will do a great job on them ;)
Unusual to see these on an exposed stem like this. I have seen these same aphid eggs crammed into the crevices of bark on the trunks of trees (especially apple).
This is where iv cut away Dead Flowers Fractal ?
Aha, so they were more protected before? That would be about right then as they like to hide them away between layers of plant material too.
They were`nt there b4 ? They came after the Cut ??
Does these look like them Jacque picture on the right http://www.backyardnature.net/ins_egg.htm
