Plant-ed,

One of my students is conducting a senior thesis project testing the 
efficacy of various biocontrol efforts in our greenhouse.  Our number 
one pests are thrips, mealy bugs, and scale.  Can anyone recommend keys 
for identifying these pests, literature on biological control in 
greenhouses, and literature describing standard methods for determining 
pest abundance?

Thanks,
Scott
