Spotted wing drosophila

A Eugene client reported that her raspberries already had
 a HUGE amount of the SWD spotted wing drosophila
larvae in the berries.  An easy way to tell is to take the
soft berries, put a few in the palm of your hand;  then rub
 the two hands to together.  This separates the berries into
 pieces and if there is the SWD, you will be able to see the
 little white larvae - the berries are infected.

You can put up a 38 ounce plastic container, add 3/8inch
wholes and add 1 inch of apple cider vinegar to the container. 
This will do a good job of attracting the flying adults.
