Wings may be present or absent; and the wings when present are unique among insects because they are narrow, with few or no veins, fringed with long hairs that hence give the order's name, THYSANOPTERA. Natural enemies have been investigated and biological control programs using insidious plant bugs and predaceous mites in the genus Amblyseius have been used in greenhouses.
