Hello, 

 

im new to this and this year have started to grow some strawberry's. it's going well and the strawberry's are beginning to grow and turning red. 

Looking at them this evening and have noticed these little pinky coloured 2-3mm long bugs, can't find anything on them. i dont think they are the crown borer And doesn't look like they can fly. My aunty gave it to me about 1 month ago. 

i can't see how to upload pic from my iiphone any help would be great thank you

They look like aphids to me, see 3rd picture on right of following site:

Best way to get rid is to rub them off by hand.
