How to protect your raspberry's from pests?

How can I protect raspberry plants from pests such as beetles?

Raspberry plants can be seriously affected by the raspberry beetle (Byturus tormentosus). Adults feed on leaves and flowers and the larvae feed and damage fruit. The raspberry beetle is attracted to plants by sight and smell and so a trap is designed to look like the plant whilst a pheromone lure mimics the scent. It is important to place the trap according to instructions as the adults emerge from the ground in spring.
