The population dynamics of Macrosiphum rosae occuring on Rosa
rugosa and R. canina in the city area of Lublin in 1992-1994
was investigated. The rose aphid was found to be most abundant on Rosa
rugosa. Dry and hot weather (over 30°C) as well as rainstorms
substantially reduced the numbers of the aphid on the bushes. Strong
infestation by the aphid resulted in significant injuries appearing in the
deformation of stems, leaves, and flowers.
