How big was that bug?

Also, how does that work? If it's 2 millimeters long but only 1 micron wide, it probably still isn't visible.  At the same time, 1 millimiter by half a millimeter is probably more visible than half by half.  So shouldn't there be some formula to account for the 3D nature of bugs?

How about if the bug keeps jumping between realities? You should need to account for all 11 dimensions

According to Schroeder if it goes between dimensions without you being able to know which dimension it is in, you will have a bug in all the realitys at once and therefore it will be trief.

Per CRC Guide, http://www.crcweb.org/fruit%20&%20veg%20guide.php

Strawberries – Fresh strawberries should have the tops cut off and then gently rub the strawberry while rinsing it under a strong stream of water.  Alternatively, after removing the tops, soak the strawberries in water mixed with vegetable wash or dish-soap, and then agitate the berries in the water.  No further checking is required

Not that big a deal to do.

All frozen strawberries without added flavors or colors are acceptable. All frozen strawberries packed only with sugar are acceptable.

So basically any frozen strawberry is ok, with no hashgacha.  Why can't I just freeze them myself?

Power wash

So we're back to power wash, which works well enough for strawberries but not for baby spinach?
