Back From Camping

I went camping this past Tuesday and Wednesday at Tettegouche state park on the north shore. 

When I left my pot of lettuce was doing great!

However when I got back home from the trip this is what I have left after an army of green bugs ate my leafs. 














This is the second time this has happened to me this grow season.  Does anybody have any ideas about what to do?

  1. It sounds like aphids took over the lettuce. I’m not sure, but that’s what I think it is after doing some googling. There are some pesticides but they didn’t seem like good options to spray on lettuce. I saw row covers as a potential solution, or beneficial bugs like lady bugs to eat them. Maybe go to your local nursery and ask them for suggestions too

    • Yeah, I’d say lady bugs are the way to go. I tried spraying my plants with this “organic” bacteria concoction last year but it didn’t do much. The green grub army is unstoppable.
