Despite the great success of the Standard Model, it still does not explain Dark Matter, matter/antimatter asymmetry and it does not unite the electroweak and the strong forces. As a possible solution, the theory of Supersymmetry was proposed. In this paper, three searches for strong production Supersymmetry are presented. The data correspond to a total integrated luminosity of 137 fb$^{-1}$ at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, recorded at the Large Hadron Collider during the years 2015-2018. There has been no significant excess observed relative to the Standard Model predictions. The data gave the following best 95\% exclusion limits for the masses of squarks and gluinos: 2250 GeV, 1260 GeV and 1225 GeV which are obtained from the inclusive search for gluinos, bottom squarks and top squarks, respectively. The search for disappearing tracks extends the gluino mass limit to as much as 2460 GeV, and the neutralino mass limit to as much as 2000 GeV.
