In 2004–2006 in southern Poland an investigation of the thrips fauna in altogether 78,000 flowers recorded 19 species of Thysanoptera. In the flowers of apple (Malus domestica) , pear (Pyrus communis) , sweet cherry (Prunus avium) , sour cherry (P. collina) , plum (P. domestica) and black chocoberry (Aronia melanocarpa) a total of 3748 adults (all identified to species) and 128 larvae were found. No damage to the flowers by the thrips was observed. The level of infestation of the flowers of fruit trees and berry bush by thrips was low and the relatively low number of larvae was due to the short flowering time of fruit trees. The following thrips species were eudominant: Taeniothrips inconsequens, Thrips fuscipennis and Thrips minutissimus .
