Re: Thornless Blackberries

Hi, I've planted a thornless blackbery and it is producing beautiful berries. Only problem is we're not able to pick any of them because the birds are picking them clean. The ones that remain look like they are drying from the inside out (I'm assuming insects?) We have ant problems in our raised bed but I'm not seeing many other insects. Ideas or suggestions for keeping these critters away? I've tried mylar ribbon to deter birds and they are unphased. I obviously want to keep it organic and shy away from chemical pesticides. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
