Abstract
Larvae and adults of Taeniothrips sjostedti and Frankliniella dampfi occur in the flowers of a wide range of plants including Phaseolus vulgaris. Spraying trials conducted at two centres in Uganda from 1963-64 showed that DDT, lindane and, to a lesser extent, malathion reduced populations. However, as no yield increases were obtained following these reductions in the numbers of thrips it is concluded that they do not cause any damage to the beans.
