Dear all,
We recently found that a pesticide named Conserve * SC from Dow AgroSciences
(www.dowagro.com <http://www.dowagro.com/> ) is effective in control of
thrips and it does not seem to affect Arabidopsis plants at all. The
concentration we use is ~700 ul per liter of water.  Hope it helps.

>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
