What is eating my roses and what to do next pls?

13 years ago

The tips of new rose leaves and the top of the canes are shriveling. This is only happening at the very top of new growth.

We have had a LOT of rain.

On the underside of the leaves I noticed a couple of small green caterpillers - maybe a 1/2 cm long. Are they the culprits?

What should I do next - I would rather not spray. If I prune the top of the canes will I get new growth?

Thank you.
