pepper spray ok on strawberries with ants?

allen11(z5 MA)September 15, 2012

Ants are eating my strawberries before I get to! I'm hesitant about pepper spray for fear it won't wash off. Does anyone know if that's so? Any other approaches?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

pick the berries anyway, place them in a bowl of cold water. The ants will drown, rinse berries.
