DescriptionI am a sugarmaker from southern Vermont. I became a sugarmaker because I wanted to establish a long-term project on my property from which I could make a living. The trees on my land are very healthy, as evidenced by the high volume of syrup I am able to produce. I have noticed the thrips damage for a number of years, but didn't know the cause until 1987. I would like to give you a brief history of what I have observed.
