zephrine drouhin

Hi, ive been spraying rose clear on our zephrine drouhin rose at 2 weekly intervals which has really helped with blackspot. The plant now looks quite good and has lots of buds etc BUT, in one of our nestboxes we now have a queen bumble bee, all the males are swarming outside so i dont want to chemical spray whilst the bees are around. Does anyone know what else i could use please?

    You're right not to continue with Rose Clear as it contains an insecticide.  Scott's Fungus Clear Ultra is a treatment for Black Spot which does not contain insecticide, so if you need to continue spraying that would be preferable.  image
