I cut fresh garlic in very small pieces and throw it in my garden at the base of my strawberry plants. Then the ants don’t eat my strawberries. The aunts will stay away from garlic.
Garlic also acts as fertilizer. The earthworms eat the garlic, and then poop it and this creates a nice natural fertilizer.
Sprinkling cinnamon at the base of the strawberry plants works too.
