The gladiolus thrips probably does not pass the winter in the fields in large numbers in New Jersey. The destruction of waste corms, volunteer plants and other rubbish in and surrounding the field is advisable. The destruction of the thrips on corms in storage may be accomplished by a number of methods such as dipping in mercury compounds, nicotine solutions, fumigating with naphthalene, nicotine dust, pyrethrum dust, calcium cyanide and other materials. In controlling the thrips on the foliage it is necessary to start early, and spray frequently. Dusts containing pyrethrins or rotenone, applied either as dusts or as wet sprays, were more effective than liquid sprays containing either pyrethrins or rotenone. The brown sugar, Paris green and water spray is said to be very effective and considerably cheaper than many other sprays.
