|Lots of insect pests can make holes in lettuce leaves so I'm not sure what might be causing them. Little caterpillars (loopers) are the most common and you can control them with a product called Dipel or Thuricide. Check over your plants to see if you can find these tiny green worms. You can hand pick them or use Dipel or Thuricide according to label directions.
