What Eats Rose Bush Roots

Question From: D. Clark - CALIFORNIA
Q: What will eat the rose bush roots.


There are a number of pests that will eat rose bush roots and most have 4 legs. Chipmunks, Gophers, and Voles are all on the list. A product called the Rat Zapper, a battery operated trap, will work on the little guys. For gophers you will need a gopher trap. Holes in the ground near the plants are from voles. Chipmunks often tunnel under foundations. Gophers leave tunnels in the lawn. Check yardener for control of these animals. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
