Alan et al.,
One more thought. Thrips have an odd tendency to sample most any substrate with 
their piercing mouthparts. I anticipate that they figure (if they are capable 
of thought) that whatever they’re perched upon is a plant and might contain 
tasty plant juices. I frequently receive complaints from folks who have been at 
the wrong end of those piercing mouthparts. I imagine the thrips is as 
surprised as is the victim, and perhaps a bit mortified to have hit blood or 
mammalian tissue fluid. “What the heck is this thing biting me” is a common 
utterance of those who’ve suffered from thrips contact. The problem tends to be 
seasonal and is frequently associated with proximity to farms, orchards or 
flower gardens. Thrips and other flying insects are disoriented by artificial 
lights, and may thereby enter our dwellings. The bites are annoying but of no 
real concern unless you have chlorophyll flowing through your veins. In those 
cases, you might worry about contracting some thrips-vectored plant pathogens.

Thank you!  Predacious or plant eater, at least I know a thrips won't mess with 
collection material.

Some thrips species are predaceous, too.  Note singular and plural spellings of 
thrips and species.

That’s a thrips. Note, that thrips is the correct singular and plural form for 
insects of this insect order.  They’re pests of living plants. Most often they 
fly or wander in through open windows and doors. Many are small enough to pass 
through intact standard window screens. They should pose no concern to museum 
holdings…. unless your facility has valuable living plants that may be 
considered desirable to these insects.
