@Mikeally I haven't had any issue with them on my honeysuckle yet but I've only had it a year. Affids seem to prefer the roses. I do use scarifical plants such as nastrutulms which acids prefer I also plant marigolds around as they tend to keep them off.i do use rose clear and an organic soap on my roses.

Good luck @Mikekally I hope it helps. You can also add some of the flowers to your salads as they are edible
