    Default Thrips

    I have some orchids that have an infestation of thrips. I have reduced the numbers by using Insecticidal Soap. Will this treatment eradicate them? I also have neem oil on hand. I appreciate any feedback.

    I would use the neem oil. That seems to get must bugs. Anyone else have any suggestions?
