Technical Abstract: Several important factors contribute to low productivity in pepper and eggplant due to western flower thrips. Research has been conducted to develop an understanding of flower thrips population dynamics and insecticide efficacy studies have allowed us to direct recommendations for biological control of western flower thrips. Present studies provide guidelines for growers in making management decisions.
