Strawberry Sap Beetle
Loughner, Rebecca; Loeb, Gregory M.
The strawberry sap beetle is found throughout the Eastern and upper Mid-western United States. Although primarily a pest on strawberry, the beetle damages raspberry and will feed on a wide range of other crops, including blueberry, cherry, apple, melon, and sweet corn. Multiple generations of strawberry sap beetle are possible per year depending on availability of these other crops.
