When I first heard about this I thought my friend was joking... but now I have it on one of my strawberry plants. Right on the main cluster of flowers
I've tried pouring huge amounts of water on them, and flicking as many off as I could with a stick. Put cinnamon on and around it, sprayed with highly diluted dish soap, but every time the next day they are back! And seem to be getting worse.
Any ideas what else I can do? Maybe try some diluted alcohol or something? I prefer not to use chemicals if I can help it.
