Hi, I just got some Monardas sent to me from RHS and after only having them for just under a month I have thrips on them.   They're small orange ones and I don't want to use anything dangerous to insects or wildlife to get rid of them so what can I do? 

Should I order some other bug to eat the thrips?  Will this prevent the monarda from flowering.  I have 6 plants.  3 are Mondarda Beauty of cobham and 3 are cambridge scarlett. 

I've only been gardening for 4 years and I'm get alot of spider mites on alot of my plants but these thrips are new.  Can anyone help?



what is small and orange the plant or the insect.?

Are you sure they're not aphids?
