  • Very small insects between 0.5 to 5 mm long

Thrips are very small insects with a slender body. Thrips is like sheep and moose in that it serves as both the plural and the singular form. They feed on both plants and animals including plants commonly found in gardens. Thrips are a common pest in large numbers and will enter homes to feed on indoor plants and even to bite humans.

Common signs of thrips include damage to flowers, gardens and other plant species. A home invasion of thrips will usually be visible with several of the small insects visible. Thrips are best combated with chemical sprays and sealing up of any cracks and entry ways into your home.

I just moved to the area and called Horizons for a quote. The office staff were very helpful in assessing my needs and getting me set up with an appointment. Horizons Professional Pest Control sent a technician the same day to take care of my problem. My technician, Chad, was very knowledgable and took so much time talking to me about what I needed and telling me how he was going to address those needs. So happy with my choice.
