Retirement Published: 03 July 2015 Reprinted: Last edits:

Good afternoon, dear readers of our site.
Judging by your feedback, such a berry culture as raspberries is of great interest, so it's time to talk about the pests that parasitize in the raspberry, especially since some of them have just appeared. Today I will tell you about the top five raspberry pests.

Raspberry Pest Videos

The five main pests of raspberries

Raspberries are a biennial plant, I mean the stem, not the bush. In the first year, young shoots do not bear fruit, they will begin to form berries only next year. And in the current season, you will harvest from the already lignified shoots of the second year, which in the fall, after harvesting, must be cut off. Young shoots require care and, first of all, cleaning the root zone from weeds, which grow faster than raspberry shoots and take away their nutrition and strength. Rip the raspberries, preferably by hand.

Raspberry stem fly

Once I noticed that the tops of the shoots were drooping. I assumed that this was due to a lack of water, but when watering did not work, I found out that the young stems suffered from raspberry stem fly - an oblong insect about 7 mm long with transparent wings. I sprayed the shoots with insecticide, and I managed to save some of the shoots.

Flies get out of the ground to the surface as soon as the soil warms up to 13-15 ⁰C, and in our country this usually happens in the second half of May. Pests lay eggs in the axils of the leaves, and the hatched larvae gnaw the stem and rush inside it to the roots, feeding on the tissues and sap of the plant. If you do not visit the dacha for a week or two, then upon arrival you will find the hanging, blackened tops of young stems.

Control methods and prevention. To save the stem, you need to cut off the affected area, which looks like it has been pierced with an awl from the inside. The place where the larva penetrated the stem is easy to find. By pruning, I saved the young growth of raspberries, which were almost completely affected by the stem fly. The cut stems began to grow, branch, and I expect to harvest them next year. If you have a lot of shoots of the first year, thin them out by removing and destroying the stems affected by the pest.

To prevent damage to raspberries by a stem fly, you need to monitor the sanitary condition of the raspberry tree: in the fall, when it gets colder, cut off the fruit-bearing and affected shoots, thin out the one-year-old shoots and loosen the ground around the bushes.

I would not recommend digging up, because you can chop the roots of raspberries, which are located close to the surface.

In the spring, when the flies are just starting to fly out, treat the raspberry with Iskra or Inta-vir: this is an effective way that I saved my raspberries last year. This season I also treated raspberries with an insecticide.

The solution that destroys the pest must be prepared in accordance with the instructions, otherwise you risk burning the young growth.

Raspberry stem gall midge

The second common pest is raspberry stem gall midge. It looks like a small mosquito about 2 mm long, or like a microos, covered with black and yellow stripes. Gall midge forms cones, or so-called galls, located on the stem from the basal region to mid-height. In these dense growths, the insect lays eggs.

Damages gall midge raspberry in the middle of summer, when the shoots of the first year reach about a meter in length. Each colony can have up to 10 larvae. They live and winter in galls, and in the spring they get out, gnawing the stem from the inside and causing the death of the plant. Even if the shoot does not die immediately, it will not give the expected harvest: the berries on it will be small, because the larvae block the movement of juice along the stem and eat its internal tissues. If you cut the stem affected by gall midges, you will see a cavity there.

Control methods and prevention. The fight against these pests should be started in the middle of summer, when the larvae move into the “winter quarters”. Affected stems need to be cut and burned - otherwise you will not destroy these pests. My old raspberry tree was all infected with gall midges, but after three years I had only three sick bushes left.

Do not spare sick plants, cut them mercilessly, otherwise gall midges will multiply indefinitely. It is better to remain a year without a raspberry crop, but to grow young healthy shoots.

Be sure to process raspberries from gall midges with one percent Bordeaux liquid in mid-March on a bare stem, while the buds are still asleep. In the fall, when the raspberries have shed all the leaves, repeat the treatment with the same preparation. And keep the raspberries clean: all the fallen leaves must be removed in time so that the gall midges have nowhere to winter, and the aisles must be loosened with the onset of cold weather.

Raspberry kidney moth

The next unfriendly guest in your raspberry patch is the raspberry kidney moth. This is a small black butterfly with yellow spots on the wings, the span of which is no more than 1 cm.

In spring, 7-9 mm long red caterpillars with a black head appear from overwintered pupae, which eat out the swelling raspberry buds from the inside. Then the caterpillar turns into a moth and begins to lay eggs in flowers, which later also die.

Control methods and prevention. Moth larvae hibernate in the bark of the stems. As soon as it gets colder, treat the raspberries with an insecticide to destroy the larvae that have nestled in the cracks in the bark for the winter. If you haven't done any treatment and the larvae have successfully overwintered, they will start harming your raspberries again in the spring.

Moth larvae can remain for the winter in the fallen leaves, if you have not removed it, and in the upper layer of the soil, if you did not loosen it well in the fall.

When loosening, it is important to turn the soil over so that the pests are on the surface. Then they will simply die from frost.

Keep the raspberries clean: with the onset of cold weather, remove the fallen leaves, loosen the soil in the aisles and spray the bushes and the topsoil with an insecticide.

The moth loves thickets, and if there are thickened plantings near the raspberry tree, it will master them, and then it will get to your raspberry. Early and remontant varieties of raspberries most often suffer from moths. If you find a moth on raspberries, remove the affected flowers without regret. At the very beginning of flowering, treat the raspberry plant with a solution of 30 g of chlorophos in 10 liters of water right along the buds so that the moth cannot lay eggs in them. Copes well with raspberry moth and a 1% solution of oil emulsion from caterpillars.

Raspberry beetle

A common pest of raspberries is also the raspberry beetle - an insect about 4 mm long, laying white worms in berries from the second half of June. One female is able to lay up to 40 eggs, and not in one fruit, but in different ones, providing each larva with a separate “living space”. As a result, one insect damages up to 40 berries. The larvae feed on the tissue and juice of the fruit, which is why the berries are deformed, dry out and become unsuitable for food.

Control methods and prevention. Spraying the bushes on the leaves with Iskra, Inta-vir and other drugs of a similar effect helps to get rid of the raspberry beetle. You can go the other way: use its biological antagonist to destroy the pest - a ground beetle eating a raspberry beetle. Ground beetles are attracted by the smell of garlic and onions, so it is advisable to plant these plants in a raspberry plant at the rate of one plant per 4 bushes.

The raspberry beetle hibernates in the ground, so at the end of the season, you need to loosen the soil between the raspberry bushes and remove the pest larvae to the surface. The complexity of this procedure is that the beetles can go 20 cm deep into the soil, and when loosening to such a depth, you risk damaging the raspberry roots. Therefore, use the tool with great care and add tobacco dust and sifted ash to the soil when loosening.

You can spray raspberry bushes with a solution of potassium permanganate, which the pest does not tolerate. Or you can collect the beetles in a simple but effective way: lay a white cloth under the bush, shake the beetles on it and destroy them. This should be done on days when the air temperature does not exceed 12 ⁰C: in cool weather, the beetles are lethargic, and it will be easier for you to collect them. The disadvantage of this method is that it is not often so cool in June.

Raspberry-strawberry weevil

The raspberry-strawberry weevil is a gray-black beetle 2-3 mm long with a proboscis like a mosquito. With this proboscis, it sucks out the juice from the flowers, and then lays its eggs in them: one individual can lay up to 50 pieces. The larvae live in flowers and feed on them. Often they cut the stalks, and the flowers die - they hang or fall. Having escaped the flowers from the inside, the larvae crawl onto young leaves, and by June the foliage is covered with small holes and gradually dries up. And without leaves, that is, without photosynthesis, the bush cannot fully live, let alone bear fruit.

The raspberry-strawberry weevil begins its harmful activity on strawberries (garden strawberries), the leaves and flowers on which appear earlier than on raspberries. Pests move from the strawberry garden to raspberries, especially if you frighten them off by treating the strawberries with a garden insecticide.

When planning your planting, try not to place strawberry and raspberry patches in the neighborhood.

Control methods and prevention. The chemical preparations Fufanon-nova and Iskra will help you to get rid of this pest, and from folk remedies you can use planting garlic in a raspberry (one plant for 4 raspberry bushes) or spraying raspberries with herbal infusions and decoctions with insecticidal action.

However, the fight against the weevil with folk remedies is not always successful because of its laboriousness: it is necessary to spray the bushes with an infusion of onions or garlic almost daily, and these remedies work only in dry weather. Therefore, I prefer to treat the raspberry with chemistry and forget about the weevil for at least 2-3 weeks. We suffer more from smoking, alcohol, polluted air and poor quality food than from chemically treated plants.

In this article, I have described not all raspberry pests, but only the most common ones. It is imperative to fight them, otherwise they will appear in your raspberry tree every year. And do not forget about preventive measures of protection: cleansing the raspberry tree from fallen leaves and loosening the top layer of the earth.

Raspberry Pride of Russia: description and characteristics of the variety, advantages and disadvantages, planting and care features

Raspberries are the most common berry in our backyards. Traditional varieties of forest shrubs have been cultivated as a crop for over 500 years, but large-fruited forms of raspberries are of particular interest to gardeners. The Pride of Russia variety can be called a real decoration of the garden: a shrub with such large berries is not found in the wild, and bright plants can be used as an element of garden decor.

Fight against diseases and pests of raspberries

When growing raspberries, gardeners invariably face various diseases of this crop. Most diseases are caused by pathogenic fungi, which show their activity with improper planting care. Raspberry pest control consists in the complex treatment of plantings with various insecticides.

The most widespread of raspberry diseases received anthracnosewhich is caused by a pathogenic fungus. You can identify raspberry anthracnose by the numerous purple and gray heels on the leaves. Such leaves dry out quickly, and the raspberry itself, if untreated, can quickly die. When the first symptoms of such a disease appear, the shrub should be treated with Bordeaux liquid. Also, excellent results are shown by such agrochemicals as Nitrafen and ferrous sulfate. It is much easier to deal with anthracnose in the initial stages of the disease.

Gardeners are bothered by numerous raspberry pests, and the fight against them will be successful only in the case of an integrated approach. Of the common pests, it can be noted gall midge, which lays its eggs in cracks in the bark and folds of leaves. Soon, microscopic voracious caterpillars appear from the eggs of the gall midge, which quickly destroy the bush. If gall midge and other pests of raspberries damaged the shoots, their bark begins to peel off, the raspberry itself dries up and dies.

Gall midge on raspberries is determined by the characteristic swellings in the root section of the stem. The fight against this pest consists in removing the affected stems, and in winter, the processing of plantings with Karbofos is mandatory.

Autumn processing of raspberries in spring is not difficult. At the same time, the implementation of such agrotechnical measures will allow in the future to avoid any difficulties with growing this crop on a personal plot, and the gardener will be able to get an excellent harvest. Comprehensive control of insect pests and diseases, including appropriate planting treatments in the fall, will allow you to get an excellent raspberry harvest.

What is apricot cytosporosis, how to treat the disease

Very often in the mouths of gardeners one can hear a complaint: "the apricot is drying up, the leaves and twigs are wilted." This is a characteristic sign of another serious disease - cytosporous desiccation. Spores of its causative agent (fungus) affect wood in places of damage, on cuts, cuts.

  • as a rule, at the beginning of summer, after flowering, the apricot's young branches and tops of the shoots wither and dry sharply
  • characteristic brown smudges form on them
  • the bark acquires a brown tint, many wounds appear on it, flowing out with gum
  • gradually the apricot wood is covered with black tubercles, which next year will turn into rough growths of a mushroom that has sprouted deep into the depths.

A tree can be saved only at the initial stage of the disease, so you need to act as soon as possible:

  • all affected branches should be removed, capturing 10 cm from their healthy part
  • in spring, be sure to trim the apricot
  • the wound surface must be covered with garden varnish, deep hollows must be cemented
  • in the fall, add top dressing (phosphorus, potassium) to the soil, do not forget about systematic watering.

What to do with the remote growth of raspberries

Often, gardeners have a question of what to do with the root shoots of raspberries after they are removed. Someone simply burns them, while others have found use for them on the site. And even burnt shoots are useful - this is wood ash, which can be fertilized with other plants.

Some summer residents and owners of backyard plots use part of the root shoots as planting material, thereby rejuvenating their berries. The remaining shoots of raspberries, along with tree branches, are laid in the base of warm beds.

By the way, in high beds (one of the types of warm ones), the box can be wicker. You can try using raspberry rods to create it.

Crushed shoots (of course, untreated with herbicides) are used as mulch on a raspberry plantation or laid in a compost pit.

Climbing plants, such as peas, are also propped up with raspberry shoots. The zealous owner will find a use for everything on the site.

Not to let the raspberry sprouts "creep away" on the site is not an easy task, but quite feasible.Of course, it will hardly be possible to solve the problem in one year, but by doing everything correctly and on time, you can keep the raspberries in one place.

Diseases and pests of raspberries and methods of dealing with them | Beauties of the earth

Ironically, raspberries, being an excellent folk remedy for many diseases, are themselves susceptible to various diseases. This shrub grass is regularly attacked by both garden pests and diseases.

Common raspberry diseases, treatment and prevention

Two groups can be distinguished - viral and fungal. Control methods depend on the pathogen. Treatment of fungal diseases is more successful than viral ones; in the latter case, most often it is necessary to resort to the complete destruction of the plant. Fungal infections can be dealt with mainly by chemical spraying and removal of shoots.

Preventive measures include lowering moisture, soil acidity, dusting, thinning plantings and ensuring free air exchange.

Purple spot

The disease is caused by the didymella fungus. It affects the stems of the offspring, which are covered with blurry spots of purple color. Outwardly, it begins to appear at the end of July, constantly spreading, and completely ring the stem in the fall.

Treatment and control measures include cutting off affected stems during the growing season, and those that bear fruit after the harvest is harvested.

Chemical treatment with fungicides, Bordeaux liquid, DNOC, is carried out at low temperatures, up to +5 degrees, when growth has not yet begun, or after the fruit has been harvested.

White spot, aka septoria

Signs of infection appear on the leaves in the form of white spots with a brown border, black dots are located in the middle. In case of neglect, the disease spreads to the stems. Thinning and treatment with solutions containing copper, (only before or after flowering), pruning or destruction of affected shoots, as well as digging up the soil in early spring and autumn, helps.


Caused by a basidal fungus, the lesions appear as bulging yellow-orange formations mostly on the upper leaves, but they can also be found on the petioles.

When the spores mature, the formations darken. Affected shoots are cut and destroyed. Mulching areas in spring is also effective.

In case of severe damage, you can spray with Bordeaux liquid, ammonium sulfate or potassium salt.

Bushiness is a "witch's broom" or overgrowth

It is caused by mycoplasma, and manifests itself in a huge amount of root growth. It is almost impossible to get rid of the disease. Only preventive measures will be effective, such as: compliance with quarantine conditions, treatment from sucking insects and the selection of resistant varieties.

Gray rot

It starts with softened brown spots on the berries, which turn into a gray velvety bloom. Dark gray rotting spots form on the leaves. For prevention, it is necessary to loosen and weed.

Treatment is carried out with the help of chemical treatment with a Bordeaux solution, before the berries appear, however, it is first necessary to clear the ground of last year's leaves.

The salvation of infected raspberries is facilitated by the collection of all rotten berries and their burning.

Raspberry pests and methods of dealing with them

All plant pests are activated in the spring as soon as comfortable temperatures are established. Raspberries are no exception. Insects damage flowers, leaves, ovaries. Prevention is carried out by spraying with insecticides, thinning bushes, loosening the soil.

Raspberry beetle

It leaves after wintering in about mid-May, eats the buds and lays the larvae in young berries. Spraying with a weak solution of potassium permanganate, tincture of tansy, fungicides, insecticides, planting onions and garlic helps to fight. You can also shake the beetles to the ground by first spreading the substrate.

Raspberry weevil

Initially, due to earlier flowering, it damages the earthling, and then, if the raspberry bushes are located in the immediate vicinity, it also moves to it. It hibernates in the soil, becomes active at a temperature of about 10-13 degrees. The female makes her way into the bud, where she lays an egg, after which she gnaws part of the peduncle and some time later the bud falls.

Damages about half of the crop. A good means of struggle are: gardonium, ambush, karbofos. From natural remedies, you can try a solution of mustard powder, tansy, hot pepper, wormwood, or ash and laundry soap.

Important preventive measures include digging up the soil after harvesting, planting onions and garlic nearby, and avoiding the proximity of strawberries.

Raspberry fly

It is selected from cocoons around mid-May, attacks the axils of the apical leaves of mainly young and strong shoots. It lays eggs there, from which a larva hatches, which makes its way down inside the stem.

As a result, the tip withers and blackens. As soon as these signs appear, the shoot should be cut in half. Of the chemical options, ambush, karbofos or actellic are suitable.

And autumn digging and mulching will be excellent preventive measures.

Raspberry moth

After wintering, small caterpillars are selected and attack the buds, which eventually die, but pupation is already taking place in it. And later, butterflies lay their eggs in flowers. The hatched caterpillars eat the berry stalk.

At the end of summer, pests descend to the stem base for wintering. During the period when the raspberry buds swell, it is worth sprinkling them with an emulsion of karbofos or Bordeaux solution, paying special attention to the lower part.

Cutting out and burning of fruiting shoots will be an effective preventive measure.

Raspberry worm

Appears directly in the berry after the beetle has laid eggs in the bud. To prevent this, it is necessary to mulch the land with manure or sawdust of non-coniferous species, or simply cover the surface of the earth under the bush with a film. In the spring, you can cultivate the land under the Bordeaux raspberry liquid.
