You may also find the manual "Pests of the Garden & Small Farm:A Grower's
Guide to Using Less Pesticide" by Mary Louise Flint. Univ. of Calif.
Publication No. 3332 interesting (it is very thick and from what I've used
of it, pretty comprehensive). Not sure of current price. To order write to:
Publications Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Univ. of Calif.,
6701 San Pablo Avenue, Oakland, CA 94608-1239 phone:415-642-2431.
Univ. of Calif. also has (in black & white) Bulletin 1911 "Biological
Control and Insect Pest Management" that has photos of "good guys" plus
thresholds, instructions on monitoring and sampling techniques, etc. Check
with same office listed above for price/availability.
