    Hello –

    We are growing lettuce in our greenhouse and want to know what bugs are eating it?

    Thanks

    Hi Tony –

    Lettuce is susceptible to a large number of insect pests and disease problems. Watch for slugs, earwigs and aphids which can occasionally cause problems on plants. Also, prevent fungal disease by providing good soil drainage and air circulation around crops. Watering on bright sunny mornings will allow the leaves to dry by evening.

    Hope it helps!
