The effectiveness of insecticide applications for control of Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) was improved by manipulating greenhouse microclimate conditions. Trials were conducted under controlled environment chamber and greenhouse conditions. Temperature and vapor pressure deficit (VPD) had significant effects on the flight activity of thrips in Plexiglas boxes in controlled environment chambers. On the plant surface in the greenhouse; however, temperature played the more dominant role… CONTINUE READING
