Strawberry Bugs
Bugs, about the size of a flea, are eating my ripe strawberries. How can I get rid of them? i do not want to use heavy pesticides, as the neighbor children like to get them when I am not home.

Hi, I'm not exactly sure what pest you have from your description, but you could use an Insecticidal Soap to see if that will work. Don't make your own solution, but find one at your local garden center. This is a pretty safe method of controlling a lot of critters, BUT I would still let your neighbor children know that they should never eat fruit that's not washed if they don't know anything about how the crop is being grown.
