So an update after an observation.
A few of my lettuce plants wilted and died. Maybe 4 out of 50. They were not dry.
Pulled them up and found a single wire worm burrowed into the main stem.
So I know they are present.
A few feet away, I have Hakurei Turnips (which are really radishes) growing. As I have been harvesting them, they have all these sunken and circular blemishes on them. Reminded me of the wireworm damage on your garlic, just none of the woody/dried scabiness around the wound Probably because they are not in the ground long enough to do this.
Then it dawned on me it has to be wireworm damage on the turnips. And that radish indeed would be a good trap crop.
