Why do wasps hang around in my lettuce?
I have a 23' x 3' salad bed this year, with a dozen plants each of 3 kinds of lettuce... butter crunch (LOVE that stuff!), romaine, and oak leaf red. I have noticed that there are always a number of wasps flitting about the butter crunch, sitting on it, crawling around it. They don't seem to be damaging it (leaf cutters)... and they aren't aggressive towards me - in fact, I had water and they don't even leave when I'm sprinkling...
Just curious - they aren't really a bother.
