General Comments

Polyphagous thrips which can cause direct feeding damage to protected, ornamental and field crops, as well as vectoring Tomato spotted wilt virus. Growers may wish to monitor for its presence, particularly following findings in the Netherlands and elsewhere, including the UK’s first finding in 2016. Current thrips control measures should also be effective against this species.
