    Simply flick the screen gently when they are dead and they will drop away

    Re: Thrips/Thunderbugs/Thysanoptera

    grr, they are awful things!!! a few of them got into my DS touchscreen... so me being me decided to dismantle the DS to get rid of it... i got it all back together as the touchscreen wouldn't work tried a few other things and resigned myself to the fact i had just killed my DS.

    but just on the off chance i took it to gamestation told him what had happened and he just did a straight swap out for a new DS there and then i was flabbergasted

    Do it mate - it's a design or manufacturing flaw if bugs can get in there surely - i.e. not fit for purpose.

    IMO they should issue a replacement.

    iirc shoving a lamp next to your screen (and turning it on) can help to attract the little buggers away from your screen... so far so good with my samsung screen, used to get a fair few in my old viewsonic one.... tho i've probably just cursed myself now

    Dell were honouring RMAs through this a couple of summers back. Can't remember reading anything last year either way though.

    To add to what Agent said, make sure you don't flick the fly itself... flick gently around it. Didn't work with the dead one in my 2405FPW though - I've got 3 still in the monitor from 2006. Have to admit, unless I was doing some fine Photoshopping, I never noticed them at all once they'd died.

    There are 3 now that are apparently dead on the screen, it's weird that they've kind of faded into the screen a bit but i know they're there! Going to wait till harvest is over to inquire at dell
