this is a photo of a beetle which has started inhabiting my T.Bugnet Rose...there appear to be aphids present too...can anyone tell me what this beetle is doing for, or to, my rosebush?
It looks like a curculio but I'm no expert...it's wing covers are irridescent golden green...and as I said it is present at the same time as a burgeoning aphid infestation... I picked about eight of these off my rose in a very short time...
Can anyone on goY tell me what I've got?
