Borers - Blueberry and Raspberry

Posted by Tunamelt 5b (My Page) on

Anyone have advice for what to do when you find these bugs on your blueberries and raspberries while they are in bloom, and hence spraying would kill beneficial bees? Borers are attacking my young Jewel black raspberry canes, observed by the candy cane droop in the new succulent growth. I also found a dead branch on my otherwise healthy second year blueberry, when cut with pruners found the worm. Today found 4 adults jumping around on blueberry bushes. Hand killed them, as well as a borer beetle on a Jewel Raspberry...but is there anything else that can be done in this little war on borers?
