Western Flower Thrips (WFT) is a devastating and hard pest to manage in crops in many countries around the world. It can carry and transmit the destructive Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV) between host plants, and also cause direct feeding damage in some crops, including cucumber, lettuce, and capsicum. WFT is considered to be threatening as it has developed resistance to an array of insecticides and is known to build up resistance rapidly.
