The current study aims to know the prevailing distribution of Thrips tabaci as well as its level of infestation associated with onion crop in selected districts i.e. Charsadda, Swabi, Mardan, Nowshera, Swat and lower Dir of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. To achieve objectives of study, an extensive survey was carried out during 2011-12.

The lowest mean numbers of thrips plant-1 (16.03) were recorded from East part of district Peshawar, whereas highest (36.49) incidence of different Thrips species were from district Swat.
