Thripline is a proprietary product containing the aggregation pheromone of Western Flower Thrips, Frankliniella occidentalis. The product is designed to improve the sensitivity of monitoring traps for thrips, particularly at low levels of infestation or in easily damaged crops. Use of Thripline for monitoring allows growers to introduce additional control measures, such as Amblyline biological control agent, before thrips populations reach damaging levels.
- Maximum sensitivity in thrips monitoring.
- Pheromone lure for Western Flower thrips causes thrips to move to the top of the crop resulting in earlier detection and estimation of population size
- Fits well into a thrips ICM program with other biological control agents and/or chemical spray treatments.
