Host-finding responses of onion and seedcorn flies to healthy and decomposing onions and several synthetic constituents of onion



Host-finding responses of onion and seedcorn flies to healthy and decomposing onions and several synthetic constituents of onion



Environmental Entomology, 94: 467-472



Decomposing onion seedlings and bulbing plants elicited a greater host-finding response by females (but not males) of Delia antiqua (Mg.) (Hylemya antiqua), than did healthy plants. Clear acetate cone traps baited with the onion chemical, dipropyl disulfide, caught more females and males than traps baited with plants or propanethiol.
