Biosweet - luring thrips out of flowers to boost control

Special sugar solution makes thrips more vunerable

  • Attracts thrips out of hiding – sprayed on to the leaves, the sugar solution attracts the pest out of the flowers and in to the open
  • Boosts biological control strategies – predatory bugs and mites can reach prey more easily if it is on the leaves
  • Possible chemical treatments more efficacious - treatments have an impact on a larger number of thrips.
