Strawberries and woodlices

For years, I always accuse slugs or snails for eating the strawberries on plants. But obviously woodlices are the accomplice and they are unlimited in supplies. Many articles defend them and said they are only interested in dead leaves. Obviously, not true for me. They never touch the unripe strawberries, but compete with us to get the fruits in prime time the second when they turn red. Any ways to stop them touching the fruits?

Interesting! Yes, I have noticed sow bugs near our strawberry plants and, like you, have thought them rather symbiotic. We do have tiny, 1cm long California brown slugs that adore strawberries and even chard. I’ve always thought them the culprit when I find a ravished berry.
