I hope you can help me identify this beetle. I have searched but can’t find a pic of this particular one. I am from Cape Town South Africa and every year in November to December (summer season) this beetle visits and eats my roses. It climbs inside the rose buds and eats them. What beetle is this and what can I do to protect my roses from them. I do not believe in using pesticides.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks in advance.
