    nice link Garth, but you know he's going to search that page and not find anything specifically speaking about wild strawberry, right? lol...crown, if you do have a license to spray(if you don't call someone that does, it's not worth the potential cost of ruining a lawn and replacing it with sod @ 24 cents per sq ft) most of the blended products containing 2,4-d mixed with a surfactant will clean it out as you work on thickening the lawn to keep it from being there in the first place. By the way, it wil take more than one time to get it all, we're growing plants, not selling magic wands, yes?

    Have you actually seen berries?
    There is a weed called cinquefoil that looks alot like strawberry.
    Either way, If you arent licensed (and the Pest. bureau will find you eventually) sub it out. There are several products that will take care of things quite nicely.
    Mecamine-D is good.
