    Early May I planted my pepers in my greenhouse. As every year I got thrips in the upper leaves. To get rid of them I use Ecostyle Spruzit a 100 % organic product with as basis naturel pyrethrum. Normally this helps quit well. Not this year, all 25 plants are still suffering from this pest. My greenhouse is 5 x 2,5 mtr. and the soil is originally sand with a lot of compost. I also have tomatoes, cucumber an aubergine in this greenhouse.
    Any suggestion on treatment? Anything I can do next year to prevent as much as possible from thrips?

    Maybe Guus, give your peppers more space. 25 is a lot in that size greenhouse, with all your other plants..
    Then they can be more full of life and resist pest interest.

    Thanks Charles, my garden and greenhouse space is always to limited to what I want to grow. I will need to make some hard choices!
    Furthermore I want to tell that I find your videos very inspiring and educational.

    Thanks for your video feedback Guus.

    On spacing of fruiting plants, sometimes less is more.
