In our institut we leave the seeds (in 2 bag layers) in the freezer over night, it is supposed to kill all the eggs.

You could put the seeds in a box with a pest strip. These are available from supermarkets for hanging in cupboards to kill cockroaches, silverfish etc. The active ingredient is often dichlorovos. Also effective in growth chambers for killing aphids.

Hello the members of this e-mail group,

When I grew the Arabidopsis, the plants were affected by thrip. Now I guess
the seed may have the eggs of thrip. So do you guys have any good idea for
killing the eggs of thrip on Arabidopsis seed? Thanks so much!

Best,

Xi
