Here you go:
I just set loose 300 ladybugs on my gardenia bush. Let's see if that helps. I odered them online from California.
When controlling thrips, you can prune and get rid of any injured areas on the plant. Regular pruning helps get rid of thrips. Thrips on flowers can be eliminated as soon as you see signs of damage by using a mild insecticide like insecticidal soap or neem oil, or by pruning the flowers. I have also used just dawn and water.
