Natural enemies of western flower thrips indigenous to California ornamentals. Robb, K. L., J. Newman, J. K. Virzi and M. P. Parrella. Symptoms of these diseases vary widely among plant hosts. Isolates of Verticillium lecanii have been available commercially for many years in Europe for control of thrips and other glasshouse pests (Ravensberg et al. Chemical control of western flower thrips (, Helyer, N., G. Gill, A. Bywater & R. Chambers. 1995; Daughtrey 1996; Daughtrey et al. WFT mortality from fungal infection is dose-dependent; the more spores that contact the insect, the more rapid the kill and the higher the rate of infection (Brownbridge et al. When feeding on WFT, A. cucumeris completes its life cycle in 11.1, 8.7, and 6.3 days at 68, 77, or 86°F (20, 25 and 30°C). Miticides had variable toxicity, and some insect growth regulators, such as azadirachtin, were not harmful.

Alternatively, thrips may be monitored with sticky traps or "the tapping method." (1995) using M. anisopliae, although better control was obtained when the fungus was applied before rather than after pupation. Currently two Beauveria-based products, BotaniGard® (Mycotech Corp.) and Naturalis®-O (Troy Biosciences), are available for thrips management in greenhouses. Zhao, G. Y., W. Liu, J. M. Brown, and C. O. Knowles. For thrips, this might be the ratio of predacious bugs or mites per leaf to the number of thrips per leaf. Although a complex of three color types of WFT occurs in the western United States (its native area) (Bailey and Smith 1956), only one of these types has spread internationally (with the exception of one population in New Zealand) (de Kogel et al. New records of thrips in Georgia. In Parker, B. L., M. Skinner, and T. Lewis (eds.). 1997) have been reviewed.

Invasion and development of V. lecanii in WFT have been studied by Schreiter et al. Of the various Orius species tested for control of WFT, all but O. albidipennis appear to be inadequate during fall and winter because of diapause induced by short days which stops oviposition by females. Interactions with other controls must be understood if fungi are to be integrated into IPM programs. 1991. 117 ) and melon thrips ( see Fact Sheet no. 1995). van Rijn, 1997. 88-201. Also, some pupation takes place on the plant, where environmental conditions are not conducive to nematode infection. 1990, Steiner and Tellier 1990), O. insidiosus (van den Meiracker and Ramakers 1991), and O. laevigatus (Chambers et al. Gerin, C., Th Hance and G. van Impe, 1994. & A.K. 1995). 65-145. Of these various parasitoids, as potential biological control agents for WFT, most attention has been directed toward eulophids in the genus Ceranisus, principally C. menes (Walker) and C. americensis (Girault) (Loomans et al. 68.).

After egg hatch, there are two feeding life stages (called the first and second instar larvae), followed by two immobile non-feeding stages (the propupa and pupa) that both occur in the soil. (Some scouts like to use both sticky traps and the tapping method. Journal of Economic Entomology 85: 9-14. de Jager, C. M. and R. P. T. Butot 1992. Spore viability of fungal biopesticides is not reduced by most spray adjuvants, but growers should contact the biopesticide’s manufacturer to obtain an updated list of compatible adjuvants and recommendations for their use. Ravensberg, W. J., M. Malais, and D. A. van der Schaaf. Cho, J.J., R.F.L. Larval and pupal stages are more resistant than adults, presumably because fungal inoculum is shed when the insects molt. Control of western flower thrips on sweet pepper in winter with. Then, rotate to a third class of insecticides, and finally, return to the original material and repeat the whole process. However, fungi may be applied successfully either 48-72 h before or after fungicides have been applied. Not logged in Orius albidipennis seems not to enter diapause, even at very short daylength and may be the most suitable of the Orius species for fall and winter use. Some species of thrips also transmit plant diseases. Insecticide applications should be repeated on a five day schedule for at least three applications. Journal of the Georgia Entomological Society 18: 342-344. In O. tristicolor, over 50% entered diapause for all day lengths below 16 hours (van den Meiracker 1994). Outdoor crops and habitats have been surveyed in Australia (Goodwin and Steiner 1996), Mediterranean Europe (Loomans 1991, Riudavets and Castañé 1998) and California (Heinz et al. 1992. 1995). Because control achieved by A. cucumeris or A. barkeri has not been adequate on some crops, the biologies of other species of predacious mites have been studied, seeking a superior WFT predator. Some fertilization practices (such as use of fresh manure), for example, are detrimental to the survival of B. bassiana; other amendments (such as use of composted manure) promote multiplication of the fungus in soil (Rosin et al. 243-252. Tylenchida, Parasites of Plants and Insects. It causes damage and spoilage to a vast number of economically important plant species through feeding, oviposition and spread of several plant diseases, most notably tospoviruses (Morse and Hoddle, 2006 ). In marked contrast, O. albidipennis had little tendency to enter diapause (fewer than 25%) at most day lengths, down to 8 hours. Shipp, J. L., M. R. Binns, X. Hao, and K. Wang. Screens deny specific pests entry to greenhouses. 1996. Rodriguez-Reina, J. M., F. Ferragut, A. Carnero and M. A. Peña. Riudavets (1995) provides detailed information from the literature on these two important species. Rather than rely on threshold values developed at some other site, under conditions that are likely to differ from one’s own, growers may do better by using thrips counts from their own monitoring efforts in past crops. Insect screening, pp. T. Smith, Massachusetts Extension, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA, 01003. Higgins, C.J. Catches of cylindrical and flat traps, of the same area, do not differ. Thrips as Crop Pests. This may take the form of a ratio of the number of natural enemies to the number of pests. Similarly, the fungal pathogen Aschersonia aleyrodis is compatible with the parasitoid Encarsia formosa (used for whitefly control) because it does not infect whiteflies that have been parasitized for more than three days (Fransen and van Lenteren 1994). Growth and survivability of the entomopathogenic fungus. The first occurs during the bloom period when adult and larval thrips feed in flower parts and on the developing fruitlet under the shuck. Thysanoptera, an Identification Guide, 2nd edition. In a subsequent comparison of A. cucumeris and A. limonicus in a cucumber greenhouse in Holland, A. limonicus was able to suppress WFT populations, whereas A. cucumeris was not (van Houten 1996). 341-346. Also, several different mites may in some cases bear the same name if "cryptic species" have not been recognized and thus not separately named. and chickweed (Stellaria media) can serve as important reservoirs of both tospoviruses and thrips in greenhouse crops (Stobbs et al. Fransen, J. J. and J. Tolsma. Because the majority of the thrips are on foliage, control of thrips populations with these nematodes is not achieved. Journal of Economic Entomology 87: 1141-1146. Short term storage (under two hours) at higher temperatures is unlikely to have a significant effect, but if fungi are held under warm conditions for extended periods, the spores are inactivated and the rate of germination in the survivors declines (Brownbridge 1996). 1995, 1997). 1994. WFT prefer to feed on flowers, so the longer a crop can be grown without flowering, the lower the thrips populations will be. van Houten, Y. M. 1996. On cucumber, control is not reliable with A. cucumeris; however, use of either A. limonicus or A. degenerans provides effective control. Important points to be considered in the design of an exclusion screening system include: Plant resistance. 1992). Use a given effective insecticide for several generations of WFT (3-4 weeks), then rotate to another insecticide with a different mode of action (different chemical class) for several WFT generations. Because these nematodes have little or no effect in the habitat where adult and larval thrips are found (the plant’s foliage and buds), there is little prospect of these nematodes being highly effective, at least not without very frequent use. 1992). Western flower thrip (Frankliniella occidentalis) is a major global pest of agricultural products.It directly damages crops through feeding, oviposition activity or transmission of several plant viruses. However, when virus-susceptible propagation material is being produced, 100% exclusion is needed, requiring smaller size openings in screening, or use of solid materials. 1 Introduction2 Pest Identification and Biology3 Damage and Relation to Plant Diseases4 Monitoring and Controlling Western Flower Thrips5 Biological Control Approaches5.1 Efficacy Trials with Pests and Parasites5.2 Biology and Efficacy of Pathogens5.3 Nematodes5.4 Summary6 References7 Additional Information.

Used mainly for whitefly control, Needs long days (<11 hrs) to reproduce. Gill, S. 1997. 1995. 1997). Prior to 1989, only one WFT-vectored tospovirus (TSWV) was known. 1994, Baker et al. In houses under 2,000 square feet, use a minimum of three traps, regardless of house size. Tospoviruses can also be detected in greenhouse crops by using indicator plants such as fava bean (any dwarf variety) or petunia (Allen and Matteoni 1991). in combination with other natural enemies. 1990. 155-170 In Banner, W. and M. Klopmeyer (eds.). Hessein, N. A. and M. P. Parrella. 1994). TSWV is a tospovirus spread by western flower thrips, onion thrips ( see Fact Sheet no. Loomans, A. J. M. and J. C. van Lenteren. Predatory mites help control thrips on floriculture crops. They have great potential for inclusion in a thrips management program but wider use has been hindered by the view that they are less effective, less reliable, slower-acting, more difficult to apply, and have poorer shelf-life than their chemical counterparts. 115-118. In general, the higher the storage temperature, the more rapid the rate of inactivation. Monitoring population densities of the phytoseiid predator. In addition, stable resistance to TSWV has been difficult to obtain (Best 1968). Brownbridge, M. and A. Adamowicz. Orius bugs have received more careful study than other Hemiptera. In Loomans, A. J. M., J. C. van Lenteren, M. G. Tommasini, S. Maini, and J. Riudavets (eds.). Biological control of the western flower thrips. CAB International, United Kingdom. 1995). This happens because the thrips suck plant cells from many garden plants, flowers, fruits, and shade trees. 1995. If you have a major infestation of thrips, your plants might be stunted with damaged flowers and fruit. Spray solutions should be used immediately because if they are held for several hours under warm conditions, spore viability will decline and the level of control will be reduced. Adults are the most susceptible stage; however, infected adults continue to lay eggs for a few days. Some thrips damage thresholds have been published. While there are relatively few data available on pathogens of thrips, fungi are invariably the most common microbes recovered (see Butt & Brownbridge 1997 for a comprehensive review). 1990, van der Schaaf et al. California Agriculture 44: 19-21. In Lewis, T. Lindquist, R. 1996. Parrella. Adults ate more WFT larvae than did immature bugs. Identification of western flower thrips In Summary â¢Tomato thrips has 2 pairs of hairs on top edge of the pronotum â¢Tomato thrips is a uniformly brown colour â¢Tomato thrips has ocellar hairs close together â¢Onion, plague, greenhouse and gladiolus thrips do NOT have 2 pairs of hairs on the pronotum Western flower thrips attack a wide range of plants including: carnations, chrysanthemums, corn, cotton, cucumbers, eggplants, gerberas, grapes, impatiens, melons, peaches, peanuts, peas, and peppers.  Vernon, R. S. and D. R. Gillespie. (1993) in testing O. laevigatus in cucumber and pepper in the United Kingdom found it was not possible to establish the predator on a cucumber crop, but breeding populations established satisfactorily in the flowers of sweet peppers (Capsicum). Thrips damage includes streaks, silvery speckling, and small white patches. Critical attributes are those that determine the ability of the species to survive under greenhouse conditions, to increase to high densities, and to consume the greatest number of thrips. Temperatures >40°C are not uncommon in pesticide storage sheds and are unsuitable for fungi. 1986. 1994) and chrysanthemum (Katayama 1997). 1 and 2). 1996. 225-229. 1996.

Besides the feeding injury on host plants, western flower thrips are vectors of tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) (German et al. Western flower thrips (WFT), Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) is a native insect of the western part of North America that was first reported in 1895. Brownbridge, M. 1995. These thresholds range from 10 thrips per trap per week to over 40, depending on the sensitivity of the crop (Schmidt and Frey 1995). Amblyseius cucumeris cannot survive below 32°F (0°C), but can be stored for up to 10 weeks at 48°F (9°C) with only 37% mortality. Proceedings of the Section Experimental and Applied Entomology of the Netherlands Entomological Society 7: 183-189. pp 601-601 | This is likely related to the closer association of TSWV with vegetables and INSV with ornamentals (Daughtrey et al. Vestergaard et al. Therefore even highly effective measures taken against this part of the population, unless repeated frequently, will fail to control the population. Plenum Press, New York. Brødsgaard (1994b) found that five populations of WFT from European and African greenhouses were resistant to endosulfan, methiocarb, and acephate, relative to a field population of WFT. Comparative life history studies of. Soon thereafter, it was found in Europe in Dutch greenhouses and has since become an exotic pest of greenhouse production in many countries throughout the world (Tommasini and Maini 1995). The developmental rates, fecundity and longevity of WFT are affected by many factors, including temperature, day length, and the plant species it is feeding on (Soria and Mollema 1992, Gaum et al. Host range of western flower thrips. Tapping flowers of incoming plants over a white piece of paper is a fast method to screen incoming shipments. Tommasini and Nicoli (1996) found that egg laying by O. laevigatus from southern Italy (37o n. l.) was reduced less by short day lengths than was egg laying of a population from northern Italy (44o n. l.). Female mites live 30 days and over this time consume about 89 first instar thrips larvae. in press). 16 and 18 in Lewis, 1997 for examples of thrips monitoring programs). NATO ASI Series. Thrips as Crop Pests. The maxillae then ingest the fluids from the cells, but not directly from the vascular tissue. Zhao et al. 1996). Use of fungal pathogens for insect control in greenhouses, pp. Successful use of insecticides for WFT control requires attention to the issues of pesticide choice, coverage, phytotoxicity, and resistance. WESTERN FLOWER THRIPS, Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), are serious pests of many greenhouse and field crops grown throughout the world (Tommasini and Maini 1995). 1995. Nickle, W. R. and G. W. Wood. Bulltein IOBC/WPRS 19(1): 15-18. Genetic resistance to damage from WFT feeding has been sought in tomatoes (Kumar et al. In Lewis, T. (ed). 10. Research on tropical species of thrips and their parasitoids may be desirable, as these parasitoids may have relatively faster rates of development. This predator aggregates on high density patches of WFT larvae, where it feeds on young larvae and lays its eggs (for above details, see references cited in Riudavets 1995, and Sabelis and van Rijn 1997). Over time, mites move off banker plants onto the crop, a process that can be accelerated by increasing the number of banker plants and moving banker plants to new locations every few weeks. Use of non-diapausing strains of A. cucumeris, while relatively successful on sweet pepper, has continued to be less successful on cucumber (van Houten 1996), presumably because cucumber plants provide less pollen for mites (Ramakers 1995). 1995b. In African violets, thrips feeding ruptures pollen sacs, spreading loose pollen over flowers. Viulm.-Andr.) There is some doubt whether this mite can successfully complete its life cycle solely on a diet of WFT (for above details, see references cited in Riudavets 1995, and Sabelis and van Rijn 1997). Two problems with use of predatory mites for thrips control in European vegetable glasshouses were recognized: mite diapause in winter and lack of pollen resources in some crops.
