The RRD is getting worse in our neck of the woods. Do you have any Organic Products that will control eriophyid mites on Rosa?
That's a tough one. Essential oils, horticultural oils and insecticidal soap may be effective on eriophyid mites, not the virus they carry. Dig up, bag and remove infected roses a day or so after treating for mites. But if there are other infected roses within 100 yds the infection will spread.
