Any acceptable pesticides for Passi?

I bought a Passi. marked "Passiflora incarnata sp." this past spring. I now have bud drop. I have spotted what I think are thrips. What can I do about them? I have never had fruits on other Passi. and don't expect to with this one either so I don't mind pesticides.

RE: Any acceptable pesticides for Passi?

I've used a systemic by Bonide on my passionflowers when overwintering indoors to deal with the spidermites and whiteflies.

I've used it on Vitifolia, Incense and Lavender Lady. Haven't noticed any ill effects on any of the plants from it.
