Thrips

thripsThe thrips species affecting the tobacco crop are Thrips tabaci and Frankliniella occidentalis.

Thrips feed by puncturing cells of the leaves and by sucking their contents. These cells lose their normal colour. Dried leaves will then have a yellowish to silvery appearance, causing losses on the commercial value of the tobacco.

Besides direct damage caused by feeding, this pest is also an important vector of viruses, especially Tomato Spotted Wilt Virus (TSWV).
