Only seems to be eating my roses nothing else. These are also all climbers my non climbing roses seems to be ok. I dont want to spray any pesticides or anything like that so any enviromentally friendly solutions would be welcome. Thanks

Is there any ways to stop it without pesticides, thanks for the reply

some people advise putting upside down pots around, with some paper crumpled inside them.  the earwigs adopt them as home, and then you can deal with them as you wish.

I actually went out with a torch and it turned out to be catapillers eating the leaves. I have had quiet a lot this year for some reason but the last few were on my clematis and the damage looked different.
