Seasonal development and life cycle—Raspberry crown borer

Raspberry crown borer requires 2 years to complete one generation. Adults emerge from the crown area in late summer and lay eggs on leaves and stems. Larvae penetrate the bark and remain there through winter. Feeding occurs inside canes and crown area during the next two growing seasons.
