Holes in strawberry plant leaves

I am growing strawberry plants in my garden and the leaves of some of the plants have holes in them. What is causing this and how can I stop it? Thanks for your help!

There are lots of possible causes for holes in the leaves of your strawberry plants. Slugs may be chewing holes in the leaves; other insects may be feeding on them; or they may have holes from physical injury to the leaves (such as hail). Before treating for any pest, search a little more thoroughly to find the pest and use a pesticide that targets the problem.
