Sorry I cant (Wont) recommend an insecticide therefore I suggest soapy water regularly sprayed on the plant this breaks down the insects protective coat and it will die off or else you could purchase some Bacillus thuringiensis

Hi greengage,
With a red face I will tell you that the black things are little thorns on the raspberry stem.

My partner went to look and laughed at me a lot 😱😘😱😘
