How bad is rain for roses in Quetta? Just to add Qta has a dry and colder climate compared to KHi and Lhr.

Hello Izhar bhai.
I'm coming back online since almost an year! :P
I need your little help.
I just want to know that what did I do wrong last year. I had around 25 potted roses, but as spring ended and summers came, all of them one by one started dying and by the end of 2016, I was left with only 2 potted roses and a broken heart! </3
Any ways I decided not to get roses any more but every time I passed by nurseries, I couldn't move my eyes from those beautiful roses! :P
Now I ended up buying 10 more roses! :D
Please help me so that I don't lose these as well! :|
Last year I watered them regularly, kept them away from mid-day sun and followed all your advises but still couldn't save them!
Is there any thing that I missed?

Spray!! how often you sprayed pesticides??

Roses in Karachi need pesticides every 15 days.... use imidacloprid and lazer alternately...

Izhar bhai, well TBH I didn't sprayed much during summers neither I told our gardener to do it as I was really busy with my studies! I think he sprayed once a month and I did saw lots of mites on them when they were almost dead.
Currently I've malathion, is it fine against mites and thrips? I just sprayed today and I think you did read my post on umair bhai's thread which burnt the new growth. I used around 10 ml in 500 ml bottle, I think I should have had used 5ml.

Thanks for your prompt reply! :)
I've few more questions,
1. Is malathion okay against mites and thrips?
2. What visible damage can thrips do except for damaging the rose buds?
3. Is there anything else I can use to kill these thrips or mites except for using chemical sprays?
4. When should I soft and hard prune the roses?
5. How exactly should I use pesticide? Like directly spraying on the leaves or pouring it in the soil?
6. Do heavy winds damage roses?
I'll really appreciate your reply! :D :)

1) Malathion burn leaves
2) twisted and crinkled new leaves
3) No
4) No need, just cut 2-3 inch every branch in November
5) Spray on leaves
6) Yes

Thank you so much Izhar bhai. Really appreciate your help. :)
Our gardener buys all the insecticide etc and currently he's at his village due to an emergency and won't come back before the end of this month.
As of now, I have no other choice except for spraying malathion against thrips, what should I do? Should I continue spraying it in little quantity or no?

Izhar bhai I found this online.

Is this the one? Should I order it?
If this isn't the one then any idea how much will it cost?
