"US (MI): "Be on the lookout for spider mites and broad mites"
Based on sticky traps counts and leaf quality, thrips pressure looks to be low in most places. Because thrips pupae are usually found in the substrate and their eggs are laid inside leaf tissue, both life stages are extremely difficult for propagators to control. Therefore, incoming plant material can be a major source of early-season thrips (assuming good sanitation practices).
Winter temperatures can suppress thrips population growth, so now is the time to be proactive with your thrips management. Consider using an entomopathogenic fungus (e.g., Botanigard, Met-52, etc.) as a low-toxicity sprench for your plugs and liners, especially in those perennially troublesome crops such as Cordyline and Vinca.
Spider mites have been found on several crops, especially Ipomoea and Cordyline. Broad mites have been found on Thunbergia, Torenia, Agastache and Reiger Begonia. Both pests feed on leaf tissue by piercing plant cells with their mouthparts and sucking out the contents.
