    I'm finding small holes in the leaves on the rasberry bushes. I can't find any insects on any of the leaves. The berries are starting to ripen and I'm not sure what effect this problem will have on the harvest. If there is an insecticide to handle the problem, what effect will it have on the harvest?

    Holes in rasberry lleaves

    The holes appear to be being eaten by some sort of bug but I can't find any of the bugs. Tte fruit isn't being effected and I'd like to stop this damage but I don't know what type of insectiside to use. I don't want make the fruit uneatable.
