Experience with Western Flower thrips in Tasmanian Glasshouses
I am going to tell you about my experience assisting several Tasmanian growers deal with western flower thrips (WFT). I will stress the importance of hygiene both for avoiding the pest in the first place and for dealing with it when it arrives. After discussing WIFT I will describe the widespread glasshouse white fly and the new pest, Bemesia white fly. I think similar lessons apply to them.
