Should everbearing and day-neutral strawberries be renovated like June-bearing strawberries?

Question: 

Should everbearing and day-neutral strawberries be renovated like June-bearing strawberries?

Answer: 

Everbearing and day-neutral strawberries should not be renovated like June-bearers.  Everbearing and day-neutral strawberries are most productive when the plants are maintained as large, single plants.  All runners that develop on everbearing and day-neutral strawberries should be removed.  Matted rows of everbearing and day-neutral strawberries are not as productive as single plants.  

A well-maintained planting of everbearing or day-neutral strawberries should remain productive for 2 or 3 years.
