Insecticidal soap, nothing that's really toxic to other forms of life, should rid you of that problem! Otherwise, very nice. Wish they had a decent tilt-shift lens.

not being flip

I don't want you to kill off your insect subject matter. Just that it takes a bit of effort to cultivate and keep roses alive and well to see them decimated by invaders.

I usually make up a light solution of Bio-degradable liquid detergent and spray them with that.
