Spray with an insecticide as soon as possible.
Provado is the best as it's systemic and a good drenching will lasy a couple of months.
Spray when the sunlight won't get on the plant or it'll scorch it.

Specifically, Provado Ultimate Bug killer ready to use spray, or Provado Ultimate Bug Killer 2 - these are rose sawfly larvae. Also spray the soil beneath the roses - preferably at dusk, after the bees have stopped working. If you're not squeamish, pick off the larvae (caterpillars) and kill them by hand.
