HI. For the last 2 years something has eaten all my raspberry leaves and then the plants die. This happens around the first of July and all the leaves are gone within a week. The young plants that grow up during the summer are ok. I've never been able to see any worms or bugs on the leaves. Does anyone know what could be causing this and what I can do to stop it?

Arlene, If I were you, I'd check for insects at certain times of the day, such as evening, early morning, or mid-morning. Look under the leaves for eggs. Spray the plants with insecticidal soap. In zone 2, you can't afford insect damage, that's for sure! Happy hunting...
