The extent to which the western flower thrips pupates on or off the host plant in glasshouse crops determines the effectiveness of ground-based control methods. Glasshouse experiments with water traps, sticky traps and infra-red video recording in crops of cucumber and pot chrysanthemum, when average relative humidities were below 80%, showed that large numbers of second-instar larvae dropped to the ground to pupate. The percentage of larvae dropping rather than remaining on the plant was calculated to be 96–99% in cucumber and 92–99% in pot chrysanthemum. Experiments with water traps showed that most larvae dropped during the evening trapping period from 16.00 to 24.00 h for both crops in the glasshouse. The pattern was similar, but less marked, for pot chrysanthemum in a controlled-temperature laboratory at 25 °C and 80–95% relative humidity. Continuous infra-red video recording in a heavily infested cucumber crop showed there was a marked peak in dropping during a period of about 1–4 h each evening, with peak rates reaching 4,000 to 8,000 larvae m−2 h−1. The time of the peak drop varied between days, suggesting that an environmental cue is involved. Possibilities for exploiting this behaviour for control are discussed.
