Slaters (I think) in strawberry plants

Postby Willy » Sat Oct 22, 2005 2:17 pm

I am new to this 'chat stuff' and am trying to find our what to do with slaters (I think that's what they are) which are thriving (babies etc.) under my strawberry plant. :( Help!

Hi Willy,

Welcome to the forums - hope you enjoy it.

What do your little critters look like? Are they doing any damage to your strawberries yet? With slaters I've had minimal success with beer traps and with a pyrethrum-type dust circling the plant - but other members will have much better ideas.

Any more info about your problem might be helpful. :)
