I have yet more pests eating away at my plants. Could anyone tell me what's eating my rose leaves?

Thank you :)

    Leaf cutter bees. Be pleased to have them! I wish I did.

    Leaf cutter bees?? I've not heard of them before. Should I be worried?

    Why would you wish to have them Mark? image

    I had these years ago in the greenhouse ; using the leaves to build nests inside plant-pots . Amazing creatures !!

    Wow yes just read about them online! I'm glad to have them now I know this. As long as they don't strip the rose bare they can stay image

    I'm going to have to see if I can spot them doing it. Would be interesting to see!
