Hi There,I am not sure if there is a "natural bug deterrent" on blackberries and cherries. I would start with what are legally labeled for these two types of crops. These are the only materials that we are allowed to recommend. One good reference is the OSU Extension bulletin, #780, "Controlling Insects and Diseases in Home Fruit Plantings." You can purchase it from OSU Extension office in your county. Please call for availability first since they may not have it in stock. Hope this helps.
