  1. tobacco thrips

    Tobacco thrips are tiny, slender insects, scientifically known as Frankliniella fusca, that feed on the leaves, flowers and buds of tobacco plants, among other crop plants. They damage the plant by sucking out its sap, leading to discoloration, deformation, reduced growth and in some cases, death of the plants. Additionally, they are carriers of destructive plant diseases. Despite their name suggesting they only attack tobacco plants, they can infest a wide variety of other plants as well.
