caterpillars on strawberries, how high to mound potatoes

caterpillars on strawberries, how high to mound potatoes

1) i noticed a bunch of holes in the leaves of my strawberry plants, and upon closer inspection, i found little green caterpillars are eating up the leaves! can anyone tell me what these buggers are and how to deal with them? will bacillus thuringiensis (BT) work on these? will it cause trouble for the strawberries that are still forming?
