How Can I Preserve Dried Roses for a Long Time?

I have been drying roses for years. I use them in different ways. My problem is the microscopic insects (?) that powder them. I have never been able to use them for more than a year. Even storing them in airtight containers doesn't help. I once pressed some roses and other plants for framed pictures. They went to powder after a few months also. How can I prevent this?

I save dried roses for long time. I simply spray them every few weeks with a cheap hairspray. They don't powder or get buggy. I have some now that I have had for at lest 5 years

I spray mine with hair spray, they seem to last forever.

I haave been collecting dries roses forever! I have about 10 dozen that are in perfect condition and almost 8 years old. I hang them and then arrange them. After that I spray them with firm hairspray and they still look amazing!
