What can I do about a tiny green caterpillar on raspberries

United Kingdom Gb

I have grown raspberries for about fifteen years and had loads of berries every year, but for the last two years a tiny green caterillar has wiped them out. Next door have leilandi trees and I wonder if there is a moth which is living in them. Any suggestions on how to stop them?



sounds like sawfly larva . at the firt sign of leaves being stripped spray with a systemic insecticide. but check on when you can eat the crop.

Sounds like raspberry sawfly. Best control is to check the leaves from early June onwards and remove by hand. If you do use an insecticide use it before the canes flower.
