Something is making holes in the leaves and the rose buds do not open they stay small. Am I dealing with an insect problem?

Probably, but the buds not opening may be something else. You should take photos and/or samples and take or send them to your local county UW-Extension office (http://counties.uwex.edu/) and the staff horticulturist or Master Gardener Volunteer can help diagnose the problem and provide a recommendation about what to do about it.
