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

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

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

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.
