Abstract: Thysanoptera, commonly known as thrips, have a variety of species and are harmful to plants by feeding and spreading viral diseases. Thrip pests have already been developed into one of the most devastating pests in tropics of China and cause great losses to economy. Natural enemies, the most important biological control resources, play an important role in controlling thrip pests. Hereby, we summarized the biological control resources of western flower thrips and main thrips pests in tropics of China, mainly including the predatory enemies, parasitic enemies and pathogenic enemies followed by a brief description about their applications. This review undoubtedly enriches the biological control resources of thrip pests in tropics of China, and lays a solid foundation for developing a novel technology of green prevention and control.

Key words: thrip, tropics, biological control, natural enemy, green prevention and control
