Strawberries may be attacked by a variety of different pests. First of all you need to identify the specific pest and then based on knowing that, decide how to protect your plants. (Not all pests are controlled by all products.) I would strongly suggest you consult with your local county extension for help in identifying the specific pest(s)affecting your plants. They will also be able to recommend the most appropriate control measures. If a chemical control is needed, they will have the most up to date recommendations on what to use and how/when to use it. You would also need to carefully read and follow all of the label directions on any product you use near your edible plants. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you.
