Researchers make breakthrough in thrips control in chrysanthemum: change in thinking: start off with biological controls, In Greenhouses, vol. 7, nr. 3, p. 30-31, 2018-08-15, Marjolein van Woerkom, http://edepot.wur.nl/458870
The predatory bug Orius has been used to control thrips in sweet pepper for many years with great success, but the results have so far been disappointing in ornamentals. Researchers Marjolein Kruidhof and Gerben Messelink now think they have found a solution. With a new method of using the bugs that involves supplementary feeding, thrips can now be successfully controlled in chrysanthemums.
