Özet Fresh vegetables such as tomatoes and green pepper are important agricultural products for Turkey. The major pest of these vegetables is Western Flower Thrips (WFT) Frankliniella occidentalis (Pergande) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae) in Turkey. Due to infestations of WFT in the exported products, tomatoes and green peppers are rejected from time to time. In Turkey, as a postharvest insects control agent, usually phosphine is used as an alternative to methyl bromide. ECO2FUME® is a non-flammable and ready to use cylindered gas formulation, which contained 2% phosphine and 98% carbon dioxide (w/w). The objective of this work was to evaluate the mortality of the WFT eggs, larvae, pupae and its adult stage. Insect materials were collected from Mersin and Adana districts of Turkey. The experiment set up contained different phosphine gas concentrations including 500 ppm, 1000 ppm and 2000 ppm. Duration of exposure time was 24 hours at 4oC at cold storage warehouse located in Mersin. The data obtained from this study presented minimal phosphine gas concentration for the complete mortality of all stages of WFT was achieved at 2000 ppm (24 hours exposure time at 4oC). Also quality of treated products was investigated. After the phosphine treatment there were no changes in physiologic, pathological and shelf life properties of the products. The results indicate that, ECO2FUME® is suitable fumigant at low temperature for disinfection of F. occidentalis from tomatoes and green peppers before shipment.
