We have a new strawberry bed and something is nibling on every one that gets ripe. what is the safe way to de-pest them?

    Might be bugs!
    Might be slugs!
    Might be birds!
    You need to investigate further to learn what you are up against. Then you'll know what to do. Check the patch early in the morning for slugs and bugs. Watch the patch to see if birds are flying in and out.
