Ants don’t like cinnamon and garlic.
I cut fresh garlic in very small pieces by hand or put it in my chopper and throw garlic pieces 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.

Sprinkling cinnamon at the base of the strawberry plants works too.
