    Anyone use this for thrips?

    I'm getting some bayer advanced rose and flower insect killer to use on my neps to kill some thrips that have been harrasing me for a while now and was wondering if anyone else used this on neps before. I know one person who has and he said it worked and didn't cause any damage to the plants, has anyone else tried it before?

    Imidacloprid right?
    I used it on some neps and dews, both were fine but it killed all the sphagnum.

    Errrrm.......hmm....I only have two neps potted in live sphag.....and none of them seem to have thrips.....perhaps I should not spray the two in live sphag?

    Ok then, this stuff is a spray......and it contains cyfluthrin and imidicloprid.

    If all of the plants are in the same area, they probably have some level of infestation & not treating them will allow them to act as islands of safety for the pests and recolonize the other plants when it's safe ... imo.

    Hopefully your thrip ID is accurate because if you actually have mites, imidacloprid is not effective.

    I've used this to treat scale on Cephs & VFTs a few years ago iirc and there was no issue with LFS dying.
