The study has been done to identify the life cycle of Megalurothrips spp. starts from egg, larvae, pre pupa, pupa and adult
stages. The host plants that have been used in the study were long bean (Vigna unguiculata). The objective is to determine
the life cycle of thrips from egg until the emergence of adult. Result from the experiment found that the life cycle of thrips
range from 15 to 19 days with mean of life cycle was 16.25 ± 0.11 days. As conclusion, the result obtained could be useful
information as a guideline data to formulate Integrated Pest Management (lPM) in term of controlling techniques such
as in selecting type of insecticide, mode of action and also combination of others techniques such as biological control
in controlling thrips
