Default Control of Thrips?

My Dwarf and Tall Hawaiian Apple [Brazilian] fruit have shown thrip damage to the fruit for all 6 of the years I have grown them.
They do not appear to affect the fruit other than visual appearance.

I would like to be able to produce fruit with nice clear undamaged skins.
How can I do this?

Thrips cannot be controlled with a mild insecticide. You'll need something which lists thrips under "pests controlled". Be sure to apply at the thrip dosage listed in the directions for use. I use Leverage 360.

This is the method I use on bananas. Deflower and then put in an agribon bag. You can use spinosad to control thrips as well, but it's an expensive option.
