Thrips lay eggs on various plant tissues. Egg-laying on grapes, or any fruits may develop dark scars surrounded by lighter halos. Nymph and adult thrips have piercing-sucking mouthparts and feed on fruits, leaves, and shoots. Feeding on apples, nectarines, and raspberries can deform orscar the developing fruit. Feeding on rose buds may develop dark spots on petals, or the flower buds may deform and fail to open. Feeding on leaves causes tiny pale spots which noticeably affect plants’ cosmetic appearance. On some plants, thrips can cause severe stunting to the early season flush or cause the leaves to drop prematurely. They also vector different viruses, which can severely damage or kill certain vegetable crops.
