The only way is to physically exclude them (wire mesh, etc.).
I have tried everything… cayenne pepper, coyote urine, setting up a distant squirrel feeder, etc. Ultimately, they just keep coming back.

i wouldn’t recommend using pesticides for ur plants cause it could contaminate them so maybe you can build a glass wall around ur plants with a plastic covering it and water it and let sunlight go through? don’t cover it too tight though… good luck and hope ur strawberries taste gooood

What’s eating my strawberries and how can I stop it?

Question by radchr: What’s eating my strawberries and how can I stop it?
This is my first full year of growing my strawberries. I recently saw a few strawberries turning red. The half red strawberries have “cave like” holes in them. I know it’s not birds. When I go into my garden to weed I have never seen any “slugs or snails”. The leaves of the strawberry plants have been eaten as well I would like to keep my garden organic. How can I keep my strawberries “eaten free”?

Thank you for your help.

i used to go ant hunting, turn on your sprinklers in one area for a few minutes, the ants will start streaming out of the nest with the eggs on their back, pour simple green into the nest, GONE, then move the sprinkler and repeat

I have planted some strawberry plants in my garden. They have started to grow but I have noticed rabbits or other animals have eaten them… What is the best way to deal with these animals? Can I grow these plants in pots? Thank you!

Answer by HyperDog
Chicken wire will keep them away, but if the soil is soft around the perimeter, you might need to bury it a few inches to discourage the rabbits from digging under it.

Question by Scott: Pest eating strawberry plant leaves only one plant at a time in row order? help? what is it can’t see any bug?
I had a row of 9 strawberry plants. Something is eating all the leaves, leaving the fruit of each plant and then moving to the next plant in order. I have removed all the mulch; monitored them every morning and afternoon but have not seen anything. No slug trails either.
