Current research on thrips. Today the influence of thrips as crop pests and the related economic importance represents the main incentive for the research on them. Thus, appropriate investigations are mostly restricted to pest species. With this focus, Trevor Lewis published the comprehensive volume»Thrips as crop pests«in Thrips cause damage to greenhouse crop in several ways: directly by their feeding and egg laying activities on plants, and indirectly by acting as vectors for tospoviruses. Plants Attacked and Damage: Thrips have a relatively broad host range, feeding on greenhouse crops such as carnation, chrysanthemum, fuchsia, geraniums, hibiscus, impatiens.

When thrips, like the ever-popular western flower thrips, become established in your crop their foothold can be tenacious. It is, therefore, very important to locally spray at the very first sign of them — assuming they aren’t actually already resistant to whatever you’re . The relative importance of thrips species on fruits and seasoning vegetables grown in the Korea Republic was assessed in The 11 crops surveyed were cucumber, pumpkin, watermelon, tomato, melon, aubergine, red pepper [Capsicum annuum], garlic, onion, Welsh onion and sesame. Eight species, Thrips tabaci, T. setosus [T. temporatus], Taeniothrips alliorum [Thrips alliorum], Frankliniella.

Thrips (order Thysanoptera) are minute (mostly 1 mm long or less), slender insects with fringed wings and unique asymmetrical mouthparts. Different thrips species feed mostly on plants by puncturing and sucking up the contents, although a few are predators. Entomologists have described approximately 6, species. They fly only weakly and their feathery wings are unsuitable for conventional Class: Insecta. Mexico is among the most important blackberry producers in the world. In this crop, thrips damage is associated with poor fruit set. The objectives of this study were to identify the main thrips.
