What could be the tiny black like crawlers bug on fancy lettuce be. To me looks like like aphids. What could I treat with without to much harm for eating.

Hi Gayle,

unfortunately for us, aphids love lettuce.

I would recommend using a product called Yates Nature’s Way Fruit and Vege Gun. It comes in a ready to use bottle. The withholding period is for 1 day so do not eat the lettuce for a day after use. You may have to repeat the spray in a few weeks if the problem persists.

Ensure the vegetable garden is receiving nutrients, you may want to add a little compost or use a liquid feed on your lettuce from time to time, this can help keep the bugs away.
