Strawberry bugs

my strawberry bed has an invasion of jumping bugs, they jump like fleas but are bigger. Can anyone give me an identification and tell me how to get rid of them

    I think we need a photo, or a more detailed description.  Possibilities are springtails or crickets.  Or giant fleas.

    Springtails aren't harmful tordi. They won't harm your Strawberry's. You soil is maybe a bit wet. Get some grit in there and they'll reduce in number. They are essential for soil health and the microbes within the soil.

    Thanks for all suggestions.  Will have a closer look at them and see if they are poring springtails
