Arthropod contamination of red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) harvested by machine in Scotland

Arthropod contamination of red raspberry (Rubus idaeus L.) harvested by machine in Scotland

Journal of Horticultural Science 72(5): 677-685

Samples of fruit from machine-harvested red raspberry were examined for insect contaminants. Earwigs (Dermaptera: Forficulidae), aphids (Homoptera: Aphididae), and spiders (Arachnida: Araneae) were the most common contaminants. Earwigs were approximately twice as numerous in a single nocturnal sample than in equivalent daytime samples.
