Western Flower Thrips (WFT) first arrived in Australia in 1993 and this 35-page booklet was developed to inform horticultural industries of the danger of this pest, particularly in regard to its efficient transmission of Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV). This is done in a straightforward manner with lots of practical tips. Information on chemical options and guidelines for timing of sprays in this booklet are Out of Date. However, this publication remains a solid source of straightforward information about this pest-disease complex. Headings include: Trapping and identifying WFT; Control of WFT (in greenhouse and outdoor crops); Pesticide resistance; Spread of TSWV; Control of TSWV; Primary ‘reservoir’ plant species; Host List for TSWV (including Ornamentals, Herbs, Vegetables, Fruit Crops, Weeds and Field crops); and Make your own sticky traps.
