A series of studies were conducted to monitor the seasonal occurrences of onion thrips (Thrips tabaci) and allium leafminers (Acrolepiopsis sapporensis) in northern-type garlic fields, and to evaluate their susceptibility to insecticides. The results showed that the T. tabaci population density increased from mid- March to mid-June, that of A. sapporensis began to increase in mid-March and peaked twice by early July. Also, using recommended concentrations, the insecticidal activities of nine insecticides against these two pests were evaluated. Under laboratory conditions, clothianidin SC, chlorfenapyr EC, dimethoate EC, imidacloprid WP, and cyantraniliprole + thiamethoxam WG insecticidal activities against T. tabaci were all 100%, as well as. those of cyantraniliprole EC, pyridalyl EW, spinetoram SG and abamectin + chlorantraniliprole SC against A. sapporensis. Insecticides, with high insecticidal activities, were evaluated on the two pests under laboratory conditions, and the results showed that all the insecticides exhibited strong insecticidal activities, and the mortality of two pests was >90%.
