Abstract

Thrip is a collective name for Thysanoptera, an agricultural pest that is widely distributed around the world and transmits viruses, in addition, to directly eating crops, causing extremely serious economic losses. Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) is one of the main viruses transmitted by thrips. Since the discovery of TSWV in 1919, much progress and achievements have been made in its characteristics, mechanism of transmission, comprehensive prevention and control of TSWV in the past hundred years. This article summarizes the characteristics, propagation mechanism and control measures of TSWV transmission in thrips, and looks forward to future research directions.

Key words: Tomato spotted wilts virus, thrips species, quarantine inspection, integrated control.
