The trips have invaded the greenhouse and eat on my chiliplantor!

I have hobbyodlat chili for many years but never sustained this injury insect. Any time you want to be the first. What do I do now? Well I have ordered Orius rovstinkfly to be the most effective to get rid of the misery.

You wont be able to see with the naked eye Thrips on the leaves in the pages if you look carefully they are very small. You can also see their black excrement as dots on the infected leaves usually have gray a little silver eaten surfaces. Some species also attacks the flowers so looking after carefully in a flower you can see them sitting there.

Fortunately not my Dorset naga plant that I compete with taking any major damage. Nyttoinsäkten Orius rovstinkfly I ordered from Biobasiq Sweden AB and they delivered to me on Wednesday. I will tell you what to do to put them out in the greenhouse in a new post later.

    Very interesting area but unfortunately not as fun in practice.
    I had attacks of the trips last season and my Bhut jolokia sheet was too yellow polka dot and saw nothing funny out. Luckily, as it grew well anyway and gave a moderate crop of fruits. I tried to take a big chunk of these and put that cutting with very good results, today is the great and growing fast, flowers spray out at a furious pace and not a trace of the trips.
    It will be interesting reading to see how it goes for you with beneficial insects and I certainly agree thumbs for you that you get on your environment!

    Sad that you are going to suffer like that misery! I have a question concerning both the trips. What is the one difference on the attack of the trips and aphids? I read somewhere that both trips and the aphid spread viruses. Is it something you should worry about out of food or is it “only” the plant's health affected?

    Thanks for a good site!

      Hi Mattias!
      In the case of lice infestation you can see the small mostly green lice and their white skinnömsningar on the leaves. The leaves can also curl up. The trips are very difficult to see. The American blomtripsen (Frankliniella occidentalis) You can sometimes see in the flowers when they eat pollen. We also see damage to the leaves where it becomes gray of a silver color stains. You can also discover small black dots on bladd; floral scapes, etc. it is tripsavföring. The virus can spread is just dangerous for plants not for us people.
