Q.White Spider Like Insects On Strawberries

Zone 64285 | Zizy added on June 12, 2020 | Answered

I noticed these yesterday, what are they? They are only on my strawberry plants and don’t appear to be moving. They are quite small, couple of mm. I managed to get a close up and one at normal magnification to show the size. How do I get rid of them? I don’t fancy eating the strawberries right now!
