Millions of Aphids on my lettuce
ARG!! I have an infestation of aphids on my lettuce. I'm not talking a few, but the lettuce looked speckled at first, b/c of all the aphids. There are both red and green ones. It's been a fairly wet week here in MA and I had row covers on. I picked 3 heads, which are covered in aphids. I will toss them, I don't think any amount of soaking will get rid of them. I'm not fond of eating them. I have about 12 heads left, with this level of infestation, should I just pull them all up and get rid of them. This is my first year experiementing with row covers and I feel like maybe the row covers exaserbated the infestation, any opinions on that? Thanks!
