Default Dealing with thrips

Hi,

Some of my roses have been infected with thrips - you can see the effects on
the lightly colored ones, esp. the white ones.

One in particular keeps on getting a bad case of rust.

Its currently winter now in Melbourne Australia.

Apart from the usual measure -

1. clear out dead leaves
2. Pruning
3. Spraying area with lime.

What other things can I do. And what effective sprays do some people use to
deal with thrips?

Thanks.

Your welcome

I'm big on soaps, and have good outcomes with them. As a matter of fact,
I'm off to apply some this today. If you use soap, spray it near sunset, to
reduce the risk of phytotoxicity.
