As fast as possible, we hope to continue to suggest solutions to the avocado thrips problem based on sound scientific research. We will determine how to use available insecticides most effectively, will search for new control materials, hopefully with different modes of action to reduce the potential for pesticide resistance development, and will evaluate alternative methods of pesticide application and timings of treatments.
