The life-history of Taeniothrips inconsequens, Uzel, in California, has already been noticed [R. A.E., A, iii, ]. The remedial measures advocated are thorough autumn irrigation and the use of cover crops. The object of the latter is to destroy the insects by producing a cold soil unfavourable to their development. Should these methods not be applicable, deep autumn ploughing is by: 1. Western flower thrips overwinter as adults in weeds, grasses, alfalfa, and other hosts, either in the orchard floor or nearby. In early spring, if overwintering sites are disturbed or dry up, thrips migrate to flowering trees and plants and deposit eggs in the tender portions of the host plant, e.g. shoots, buds, and flower parts.
Pear trees are generally easier to manage as far as pests and diseases are concerned compared to apple, plum and cherry trees. But there is no doubt they can suffer from a couple of very serious pests, pear midge being the most common and probably the most difficult to eradicate. This article explores all the common pests and diseases which may. Abstract. Pear thrips, Taeniothrips inconsequens, were placed in cylindrical, fine-mesh nets enclosing whole tree crowns to examine the effect of pear thrips feeding damage on sugar maple leaf area in the infested trees was reduced by approximately 20% relative to undamaged control trees. Damage caused a consistent reduction in leaf photosynthetic rates by 4 to 20% although Cited by: 4.

Sugar Maple and the Pear Thrips Taeniothrips inconsequens (Uzel); Family: Thripidae Maple leaf damage from Pear thrips damage by larvae is also found on many non-tree plants growing under the forest canopy or beneath orchard trees.
In Europe, this insect is associated with forests more than orchards (Lewis ). Western flower thrips eat pollen and nectar from a wide range of plants (at least species from 62 families).
Pear thrips are a native of Europe and have been a pest since the early s on not only tree fruit but an array of forest trees.
This pest spends most of the winter as an adult female in the soil. Management: Control of pear thrips is difficult because adults emerge and enter developing buds before trees leaf out. The damage done by thrips takes place over a short time span, and insects are concealed in buds for much of that time.
Results of research on the effects of entomopathogenic fungi on pear thrips populations may provide new control options. Pear thrips are tiny insects (1 mm to mm long) that suck the delicate tissues of freshly opened sugar maple buds. The sugar maple is the species reported to have the worst attacks and the most damage, although pear thrips attack other species such as red maple and Norway maple.

From diseases to pests, many potential issues can be prevented with spraying before they even begin. To reap its benefits, spraying should be done consistently and thoroughly following the guidelines below.
Pear thrips were found in % of the sites, and were detected in every county. This means that the source for future populations and possible tree damage still exists statewide. Due to the increase in pear thrips, especially in central and southern regions of the State, damage was expected in the spring of Impacts (N/A) Publications.
pear thrips had been reported in New York on apple and pear trees. In both its native Europe and in North America it attacks a variety of orchard and forest trees. Primary hosts in the northeast include maple, bass-wood, beech, walnut, oak, white ash, dog-wood, lilac, grape, pear, apple, cherry, peach, plum, apricot, and Size: 49KB.
These insects were collected and identification confirmed them as pear thrips. Studies conducted on sugar maples in Pennsylvania in the early s concluded that the pear thrips was indeed responsible for forest tree damage in Pennsylvania. The pear thrips defoliated million acres in.
Pear thrips definition is - a destructive thrips (Taeniothrips inconsequens) native to Europe that attacks the buds and young fruits of prune, cherry, pear, and almond trees.
Thrips are minute, slender-bodied insects about inch (1 mm) long. Some species of thrips are attracted to the blossoms of flowering plants, including apple and pear trees. Adult western flower thrips range from clear lemon yellow to yellow brown to dark brown in.

Pear thrips can be a severe pest of sugar maple. Thrips feeding in nectarine blossoms and fruitlets in areas of the state where sugar maples are common has caused scarring injury on the fruit.
Description and life cycle. Pear thrips produce just one generation per year. Adults are dark brown and occur only as females in North America. Sugar maple farms in Randolph and Braintree suffered significant damage to sugar maple trees caused by a combination of feeding by pear thrips and forest tent caterpillars, and field trials using new formulations of entomopathogenic fungi against PT may be possible in Spring Bradford pear trees, Pyrus calleryana var.

In the northeastern region of the USA, widespread defoliation of sugar maple trees periodically occurs as a result of the activity of the exotic pear thrips, Taeniothrips inconsequens (Uzel) .This pest was initially identified causing damage to maples in Cited by: 7.
