View Full Version : Growing Strawberries..Bugs
05-11-2007, 03:16 PM
I have a full-sized SFG box of strawberries growing in my yard this year, but I've already started noticing bugs all over the plants. What natural thing can I do to prevent bugs from infesting my strawberry plants and eating all of them? I'm already building a top to the box to prevent birds, but now I need something to get rid of the bugs.

what kind of bugs are they? I heard that lady bugs are a natural way to get rid of aphids.

At the farmers market last summer, I met a grape grower who dusted his grape vines with powdered milk. Apparently it works to keep bugs away - I wonder if it would work for strawberries?

I use Safer's Insecticidal Soap. It comes in a spray bottle. There are other similar brands out there, perhaps some less expensive. Look for something that says "organic" on the bottle.
