Answer: Slugs and snails do like strawberries so planting yours in a container and raising it above ground level will certainly help. There are several ways you can trap the pests; grapefruit rinds can work. There is also a new snail control on the market which contains iron. It is harmless to wildlife and works well to control the pests.
Many insect pests can attack corn and eggplants, but without knowing exactly which one did the damage in your garden, I can't really make a recommendation. Try rotating your crops; planting them in different areas of the garden from year to year. This will confuse the insects and they won't have as much of a change to ruin your vegetables each year.
Best wishes with your garden!
