Strawberries


simpson.mary95 added on May 13, 2016 | Answered

I have a mole or chipmunk eating my strawberries. They are in a raised bed and this critter has a burrow in the bed. Convenient right? Can I fill the bed and burrow with mothballs? Will the mothballs affect the flavor of my strawberries?
