What's eating my strawberry plants and how can I stop it?

It looks like flies are eating my strawberry plant leaves as I've put slug pellets down and the leaves are still being munched - all I've ever seen on them is smal flies but slightly bigger than blackfly although they are black. What can I do? I don't want to lose the strawberries to them too when they come. Thanks for any help.

Get an all purpose type insect spray, such as Sevin" and spray the leaves. It is safe to use and kills aphids, white fly and spider mites. They cause more damage than anything else.
