As a part of the Ag Innovation Series, Sustainable Pest Management in Greenhouses and High Tunnels is geared towards growers in the northeastern United States, or similar climates, producing vegetables in unheated greenhouses and high tunnels. The publication includes a compilation of results regarding biological insect control from 23 case studies at nine farm locations in New York from 2007 to 2009. More specifically, the publication looks at the application of different natural enemies against the following common pests: two-spotted spider mites, thrips, aphids, and whiteflies. The natural enemies included are predatory mites, parasitic wasps and the predatory minute pirate bug.
