How do I get rid of wild strawberries. They are all over the back lawn. The regular wild killer doesn't seem to work. Thank you.

Digging them out, crown and all is the best way to get rid of wild strawberries. Or, a broadleaf weed killer such as Weed B Gone Max should take care of them, or you can spot treat with a vegetation killer such as Round Up. Since it is a contact killer it will also kill any grass it touches so you'll end up with dead spots in your lawn if you're not careful to apply it to only the wild strawberries. Wish there were a better solution. Good luck with your eradication project.
