Tiny black bugs on raspberry

queensinfoJune 27, 2013

I had an explosion of these tiny black bugs on my rasps and blackberries over the last week. Not sure if it is the heat after a ton of rain or just coincidence. The leaves are very witty but that is likely from heat stress for missing a day or two of watering while it was 90+. These plants are in containers. I have also foUnd holes in some of the rasps that are ripe. They are too small to take pictures of but I will try.
Any thoughts on how to control? Neem oil?

Could be sap beetles. [I have sap beetles on the brain today]
