Description: The aim of this paper is to amplify some of the general points made in my introductory paper on the order Thysanoptera (Lewis 1990, this proceedings), with particular reference to feeding, flight and dispersal. These aspects of thrips behaviour are clearly of great relevance to the spread and effects of infestations of Taeniothrips inconsequens in New England, and although most of the work described has concentrated on another species, Limothrips cerealium (Haliday) (Lewis 1973, Chisholm & Lewis 1984) much of the information is probably applicable to terebrantian species of similar phytophagous habits and size such as the pear thrips.
