strawberry plants

I always have small bites on my strawberries. Do you think this could be snails?

Yes, slugs ate all but two of our strawberries last season. :evil:

Slugs really went after my strawberries last season, and I notice, that many plants didn't survive the winter, I suspect the slugs also ate the plants.

Lots of critters and birds like strawberries. Can you blame them?
