    Description

    Slash pine flower thrips typically destroy about 24% of the flowers (cones) present in slash pine seed orchards. The seasonal distribution and abundance of slash pine flower thrips are being investigated and methods for sampling field populations of the insect are being evaluated for potential use in integrated pest management strategies. The efficacies of several sampling methods, including Berlese funnel extractions of host plant materials, suction apparatus, scouting, flight traps, and soil emergence samplers are reported.
