Thrips are major agricultural pests that can cause produce to be quarantined, and they transmit plant viruses and cause damage to a multitude of crops. The use of an aggregation pheromone is a novel method for monitoring and controlling thrips. The glandular area on the sternite of male thrips is related to the secretion of pheromones. Therefore, the identification, shape, size and distribution of these glandular areas is useful. Adult males of 21 species belonging to 15 genera were examined and identified by their morphology and the characteristics of their glandular areas. We then considered the sex ratio of male to females, the glandular area of the males, the economic importance of these pests and other related issues and estimated the possibility to develop a pheromone formulation and its potential to be applied as a pest control in the field.
