Raspberry Insects


jimmaxx added on April 18, 2012 | Answered

I have two raspberry plants that do extremely well, but the only problem is very small ants, millions of them it seems. Can you please tell me how to stop those insects from ruining my raspberries? They actually do no harm, but I cannot eat them with the thought I might be eating tiny ants. Thank you.

If you are seeing ants, it probably means you have an aphid problem. The ants are not a problem, but the aphids are. Once the aphids are treated, the ants will leave too. Here is some information on treating aphids:
