Control of the banana rust thrips (Chaetanaphothrips signipennis (Bagn.)) in north Queensland

Franzmann, B.A. (1977) Control of the banana rust thrips (Chaetanaphothrips signipennis (Bagn.)) in north Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural and Animal Sciences, 34 (2). pp. 175-178.



A field trial in north Queensland investigated DDT spray and DDT /BHC dust as banana bunch treatments and dieldrin butt sprays for control of the banana rust thrips, Chaetanaphothrips signipennis (Bagn.). Three applications of DDT /BHC dust resulted in unblemished fruit. The commercially used dieldrin 0.05% butt spray for weevil borer, Cosmopolites s9rdidus Germ., also controlled the thrips. The ramifications of C. signipennis control by this method in bananas is discussed.
