How Do I Get Rid of Green Worms on My Rosebushes?

There are little tiny green worms on the underside of the leaves of my rose bushes. They eat at the leaves until they are gone. I have used a general spray that was recommended by a nursery to get rid of them, but it is not working. I had them last year too. I can't seem to get rid of these little green worms.

You can also go with a more hard-core chemical solution, such as the insecticide called Sevin. Look for this and other products at your local garden center. Be sure to follow the directions on the packaging -- if you misapply these products, they won't work very well
