Chilli Thrips in Blueberries

Possible Chilli Thrips have been found in Georgia Highbush fields. Specimens are being sent to Dr. Sial for conformation. Chilli Thrip infestations can cause leaf curling and bronzing. Chilli Thrips can go from egg to adult in 10-15 days. Monitor weekly and implement a spray program if 5% of the field has injury from Chilli Thrips
