What happened to my raspberries?

Greetings. This is my first year gardening and I've run into an issue with my raspberries.

They were doing great until about two weeks ago. Now most of the foliage is turning brown. I thought it may have been insect damage, so I started spraying with dish soap. Doing so has not yielded me much success.

I have melons and blackberries within 5 feed of these guys and zero issues with either one of those. I'm really at a loss.

Do you have any ideas on what might have caused this and what I should do?

My raspberries don't have the brown spots, but the insect chewing looks very familiar. Sprayed my raspberries with a combo of Immunox and Triazicide. Worked perfectly. The leaves of both my raspberries and blackberries are now perfect. Mrs. G

I think the cool, wet spring has not been kind, and your plants are having a little trouble finding their feet. Pull back the mulch, because slugs are chewing those holes, and you're getting a bit of fungal wilt from the leaves staying wet too long. Warmth and dry weather will perk them up.

In my experience, raspberries take longer to recover from transplanting compared to other brambles. Once established, they thrive.
