Tomato plant and leaf age effects on the probing and settling behavior of Frankliniella fusca
and Frankliniella occidentalis (Thysanoptera: Thripidae).
The major pests of RP were spider mites (Tetranychus urticae Koch), black aphids (Aphid spp.), and thrips, very likely the species Frankliniella fusca
Of these, 8 species transmit tospoviruses: Frankliniella bispinosa (Morgan), Frankliniella cephalica (Crawford DL), Frankliniella fusca
(Hinds), Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande), Frankliniella schultzei (Trybom), Scirtothrips dorsalis Hood, Thrips palmi Karny, and Thrips tabaci Lindeman (Rotenberg et al.
The same picture arises for the peanut-thrips system in southeastern USA: Frankliniella fusca
(Hinds) cause early-season foliar injury which often leads to stunting of peanut plants, but the economic justification for thrips suppression remains controversial and, in general, controlling thrips is not recommended (Brecke et al., 1996).
Worldwide, there are 9 species of Thripidae reported on papaya as potential vectors of papaya virus diseases, namely, Frankliniella fusca
Life-fertility tables for Frankliniella fusca
(Hinds) and Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) on peanut.
The same authors (2013b) measured a reduction in the number and duration of probes by Frankliniella fusca
(Thysanoptera: Thripidae) feeding on pepper treated with cyantraniliprole.
The Vidalia onion production region in Georgia, which consists of ~13,000 acres valued at $126,000,000 (Boatwright & McKissick 2009), is an unusual onion production region because the dominant species attacking onions has traditionally been tobacco thrips, Frankliniella fusca
(Hinds) (Sparks et al.
