Yes, you can try the beneficial nematodes for thrips. Also Lady
Bugs, Amblyseius cucumeris, or Orisus insidiosus, all beneficial
insects (or worms). I think the price is about $25 US for any one
of them but you can check by writing in the individual name and do
research. Don't forget: 1. Some must have very high humidity in
order to do their work. 2. Some adult beneficials must be fed so
their larvaes can do the work of getting rid of you problems.
You should also pinch of every bud or flower for at least two months.

price of them, need to know the efficiency rate. Anybody?
