Dear Mathieu:

 

We had the same problem for many years until a PDF in my lab, Gillian Dean,
introduced us to mites as a biological control for thrips.  Mites are an
effective relatively cheap control that I highly recommend.

Subject: [Arabidopsis] How to get rid of thrips?

 

Hello,

 

>From time to time we have thrips on our Arabidopsis plants. We have used
different insecticidal sprays with success.

However treated plants produced little pollen usually abnormal and seed
development seems affected as well.

 

Anybody have any suggestions to avoid or limit this problem?

Thank you

 

 

Mathieu
