Hang bird feeders near your rose bushes to attract blue tits to the area ... they hoover them up for their babies.
Also as you don't use chemicals the lady birds and lace wings and hover flies will take a lot of them.
However, it may take a couple of years to create a balance in your garden, so until then just remove most of them with your fingers or a soft paint brush , or a jet of water from the hose.
I don't use any chemicals ... a few weeks ago there were aphids on my roses but I did nothing ... the bluetits and the ladybirds have taken them all
