    They're aphids definitely. I spray with an insecticide containing pyrethrins and it does the job.

    I've also heard diluted rubbing alcohol is good against aphids

    I was inspecting mine, but couldn't find a single one. That is until the situation got almost out of hand. Honestly I paniced, and nuked them with rose pride areosol spray. I guess we'll see if the plants survive. The rest of my collection I'm treating with Neem diluted at half strength.
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive

    How does one use the dilute rubbing alchohol? It seems safer. Personally I don't see any aphids(check in the rosette too)...but who knows.
