What you'll see: Distorted and discolored foliage and flowers; extremely tiny insects, ranging in color from white to tan to dark brown.


Management: Wash thrips off with a fine spray of water every few days. Use an insecticidal soap made for indoor plants, and spray every two to three days for about a month. Another option: Neem oil sprays will cause thrips to stop feeding and eventually expire.
