Two species of fruit flies attack the fruit of sweet and sour cherries; the cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis cingulata, and the black cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis fausta. These fruit flies are closely related to the apple maggot and the blueberry maggot which attack apples and blueberries, respectively.

The European red mite is another introduced pest in the US. It is a pest of nut, pome and stone fruits, and some berries. This pest damages leaves and causes fruit russetting. European red mites can have 6 to 8 generations per year, depending on the temperature. Summer generations may develop in as little as 14 days.
