It’s as though this l’l critter has a cookie cutter it carries around and stamps out a circular pattern from the leaves of roses, grapes, bougainvilleas, flowering pears……If you happen to see these round cuts, don’t panic. The cutter bee is hard at work building nest with the material. They’re not eating or sucking on the plant and chances are the damage is already done anyhow. The most damage they might do is build the tubular nest inside a condensate drain and plug it up! So just give your plants a little fertilizer that they need right now anyhow and they’ll be just fine!
