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?
