    Description

    Life history information has been collected for pear thrips in orchard habitats in California and British Columbia (Cameron & Treherne 1918, Bailey 1944). However such information is not available for this insect in a northern hardwood forest ecosystem in the eastern United States. Research is currently underway at the University of Vermont to determine the pear thrips life cycle in Vermont sugarbushes. These data are urgently needed to assist researchers and forest managers in their efforts to develop methods to effectively manage this pest. Results from 1988-89 are presented here to provide preliminary life cycle information. Research is continuing to determine annual trends and variations in the pear thrips life history and to correlate these variations with weather conditions.
