The color preferences of western flower thrips (WFT) were studied to help use sticky traps efficiently. White, yellow and blue traps were tested. Bright blue and dark blue traps were the most attractive. The Horiver-Tr® trap captured more WFT than these blue traps but not significantly more than the dark blue trap. The bright yellow trap was not the most appropriate for use.
