All my roses have buds on them and it will be such a shame if that locust plague happens. I reckon to save the rose bushes I could disguise them with white Derris Dust but that won't be very attractive for photo's. Locusts are mainly attracted to anything green, not white. Don't laugh .... no, you can laugh because I am, if white puts them off I have a lot of French chalk and potato flour that I used to use on my Sheltie's whites at the dog shows, I'd even use that to protect plants seeing I don't show anymore.
So dusting your roses with French chalk or potato flour will help steer the locust away? Would this dusting also keep other critters away too? Interesting.
