Population Abundance of Thrips tabaci Lindeman and its Associated Predators on Some Crops at Shendi, River Nile State, Sudan
TLDR
Investigating the seasonality of T. tabaci and its main associated predators at Shendi area proved that the peak reproduction period of the pest is highly confined to the succulent early stage of onion growth between November and January, and showed significantly higher percentages of infested plants than tomato. Expand
Effect of Different Host Plants on the Onion Thrips, Thrips tabaci Lind. and the Land Snail, Monacha spp. Population Abundance According to Intercropping some Vegetable Crops and the Final Yield
TLDR
The population abundance of thrips and snails differed according to host plant, there were significant differences among host plants (p≤ 0.05), and the resultant yield, due to intercropping, was also affected. Expand
EXISTENCE OF BEAUVERIA BASSIANA (BALSAMO) VULLEMIN AS ENDOPHYTE ON ONION PLANTS AND ITS PATHOGENICITY (IN VITRO) AGAINST ONION THRIPS, THRIPS TABACI LIND. (THYSANOPTERA: THIRPDAE)
TLDR
Virulence of B. bassiana against onion thrips (nymphal and adult stages) elucidated that the fungus was more effective on nymphal than adult stage as indicated by low value of LC 50 and LC 95 . Expand
Effect of planting space and shoot pruning on the occurrence of thrips, fruit yield and quality traits of sweet pepper (Capsicum annum L.) under greenhouse conditions
The effect of planting space and shoot pruning was investigated in sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) during summer 2018 in Tsukuba Japan. Two spacing (40 cm and 70cm between rows) and three pruningExpand

Population dynamics and damages of onion thrips (Thripstabaci) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) on onion in Northeastern Ethiopia
TLDR
Thrips population started increasing in December and reached the pick value of 159 thrips per plant in March and more yield loss was observed in onion transplanted during dry seasons (October to February), which is important for the management of onion thrips by growers. Expand
THE IMPORTANCE AND MANAGEMENT OPTION OF ONION THRIPS, THRIPS TABACI (L.) (THYSANOPTERA: THRIPIDAE) IN ETHIOPIA: A REVIEW
TLDR
Evaluated previous work in the management of onion thrips found use of selective insecticides in rotation to be the most important tools for thrips control, but there are few labeled insecticides that registered in Ethiopia provide effective and consistent control. Expand
Towards integrated pest management of Thrips tabaci in onions
TLDR
Populations of onion thrips, Thrips tabaci, and their natural enemies were monitored in small field plots of onions to which standard insecticide, selective insecticide or no insecticide treatments were applied, resulting in increased plant damage and shorter leaves. Expand
Effect of temperature on development and reproduction of the onion thrips, Thrips tabaci Lindeman (Thysanoptera: Thripidae), on pollen and honey solution
TLDR
A maximum of between seven and 11 generations could have developed annually between 1990 and 1998 using data related to records of field temperatures in Kurashiki, western Japan, to estimate the potential number of generations per year that could complete development under outdoor conditions.

Transmission of Pantoea ananatis and P. agglomerans, causal agents of center rot of onion (Allium cepa), by onion thrips (Thrips tabaci) through feces.
TLDR
Results suggested that T. tabaci could efficiently transmit Pantoea ananatis and P. agglomerans, one of the causal agents of the center rot of onion, to onion seedlings. Expand
Evaluation of Insecticides for Thrips tabaci (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) and Effects of Thrips on Bulb Onions
Insecticides tested against onion thrips, Thrips tabaci Lindeman, were aldicarb, aldoxycarb, cyfluthrin, cypermethrin. chlorpyrifos, fluvalinate, isofenphos, parathion, and permethrin. All reducedExpand
In vitro Evaluation of Aqua Extracts of Some Botanicals against Maize Stem Borer, Busseola fusca F. (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
TLDR
The cumulative data revealed that the standard check-Cypermethrin 1% G at rate of 0.3 kg/ hectare recorded significantly higher mean percent mortality of maize stem borer, Busseola fusca, over all the other treatments. Expand
Thrips on Onions: Identification and Management
TLDR
