Survey for Thrips palmi in Ireland
An official survey has recently been carried out for Thrips palmi (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) in Ireland. The survey was carried out at the place of production of flower crops and vegetables and at premises involved in the importation and marketing of flowers. During the first 8 months of 1997, 76 samples were examined and no T. palmi were found. The survey will continue.
