Fighting the Gusanos

Our sustainable agriculture intern, Evan, works on the farm six days a week along with Marlon, who manages the farm and stables. They noticed that our lettuce beds were being eaten by gusanos, the Spanish word for worm. We believe these gusanos are beetle larvae that cut through the soil looking for nutrients.

They devised an experiment to find the best way to deter these pests. Watch the video below to find out their three methods as well as get a look at our farm and greenhouses.

Don’t forget to check back next week to find out the results!
