Problem with roses

Tommy Maddock asked 10 years ago
Some of my tea roses seem to have been eaten or sawn across the leaves and stems and the stems have dropped off. It looks like the cut one would make with a scissors.I Live in a rural , wooded area. Can’t see any bugs etc around the plants.Can hares/rabbits do this?

The leaf cutter bee is a species of bee that cuts rounded chunks out of rose leaves to make its nest. Sometimes leaf veins are cut through. The damage is insignificant and no action need be taken.
