dc.description.abstractStudies were conducted in small plot field trials to evaluate the efficacy of several experimental and conventional insecticide chemistries against western flower thrips in head lettuce. Results from two trials using new experimental compounds showed that several insecticides have potential for management of thrips populations. All of the products appear to be good candidates for thrips control and had efficacy against adults and nymphs. Success and Fipronil consistently provided comparable control to the standard Lannate/Ammo. In the trial evaluating conventional compounds, Orthene/Mustang and Lannate/Ammo combinations provided the best control of both adult and nymphs. Plant size and temperature may be important factors contributing to the efficacy of these products.
