Roses are 6 years old, never had a problem with anything other than thorns when I prune them. This year all of a sudden the leaves disappeared within 4 weeks to being almost naked. I decided to cut them back thinking whatever it was had left but when I turned the good leaves over on the branch I found WORMS. Never seen so many. One bush had what looked like a webworm netting on the lower branches and I included it in the pictures. What are they and will they be back?
