Get the Latest Insights on Thrips Parvispinus From a Leading Expert

Thrips parvispinus emerged as a significant threat to tropical ornamental crops in North America in 2020. Given the extent of the damage it causes, as well as the documented insecticide resistance, integrated pest management (IPM) approaches are needed to supplement chemical control measures until cost-effective biocontrol initiatives can be established for this pest.

To better educate growers, American Floral Endowment (AFE) is presenting a webinar on “Preparing for Parvispinus” on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 1:00 PM EST. The webinar is part of AFE’s Grow Pro Webinar Series, in which nationally recognized researchers, hosts, and speakers offer how-to advice based on AFE-funded and other research projects to help the industry navigate through ever-changing growing challenges.

The speaker for the webinar is Dr. Sarah Jandricic, Greenhouse Floriculture IPM Specialist·Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and a leading expert on thrips parvispinus.

Topics will include:

  • The latest developments on Thrips parvispinus, including range and regulation status
  • Important floriculture crops that are impacted
  • How to detect and monitor Thrips parvispinus
  • IPM strategies, including pesticides, physical controls, and cultural controls
