 Can anyone identify these for me please? They are ravaging my roses and I'm sure they've doubled in size since I took these yesterday! I`ve seen posts about sawfly, have no idea what they are! If that's what these are, do I get rid? If they're butterflies, will put up with them!

I also have a massive slug/snail problem but it's a "woodland" garden with a lot of shade! Any alternative suggestions to slug pelets please?

Hi Busy-Lizzie, no deer access here, although they are just a few hundred yards away, but lots of birds including blue-tits, so looking at earlier posts, hopefully they won't be around for long! (the grubs!) I usually cut off affected branches and get rid, as I have a phobia of caterpillars! Trying to be tollerant this year, but these are right next to where I have my morning cuppa!!!

I have just taken some pics of the same thing happening to mine (including the culprits!) but can`t upload them, any tips as I would like to know what they are! They only seem to attack my red roses, one a bower rose, the other is "Isabella".
