Abstract:

Small scale glasshouse trials showed that second instar nymphs of Orius laevigatus reduced Frankliniella occidentalis numbers (78–92%) more than Neoseiulus cucumeris (0–30%). Combining the predators did not increase reduction of thrips numbers (84–93%). Pollen did not increase thrips control, but led to an increase in the number of thrips.
