Rick, this is the exact reason I started this project in the first place.  And like I mention at the bottom of my list, there is another good list in the GTA Library.  I found the Library list after it was pointed out by Dave [ezman604].  <--- He is sort of the BOSS around here.  Hee hee
Thank you for your suggestion, OGTDUA.  I am going to be adding it - So check back in a while to see your contribution.

This list is great very helpful!
I see TSS, on the list, SSG, SSP, but someone explained on a thread* what SSS is, the triple-S approach in uncertain pest control situations:

What is "HW"?  It seems to be short for the name of one of the AG manufacturers.
