How can I tell if my plant has Thrips?

Thrips are determined in a few different ways. They are hard to spot with the naked eye but get scared easily and will jump or fly around the plant. Look for needle-like movement or even leaf veins appearing animated. Besides searching for Thrips, themselves, they can damage a plant. Commonly Thrips leave white patches, discolored leaves, and dark areas. If Thrips are carrying plant viruses, leaves will start to welt.
