This week, redbanded thrips were found in a home landscape in west Mobile. Some shadows are involved in the left one looking lighter, but the difference was obvious when looking at them, just like last week’s picture in a nursery. The bleaching was not as bad in the landscape, but symptoms were similar. ADT stands for “Another Darn Thrips…”
