Sex attractants for Geometrid and Noctuid moths : Field trapping and electroantennographic responses to triene hydrocarbons and monoepoxydiene derivatives


Journal of Chemical Ecology 11(6): 727-756
Sex attractants for Geometrid and Noctuid moths : Field trapping and electroantennographic responses to triene hydrocarbons and monoepoxydiene derivatives
Males of 17 species of Geometridae and 9 species of Noctuidae were captured in Canada in traps baited with synthetic chemicals as part of a field screening programme. The compounds tested were the C18-C22 homologues of: (3Z,6Z,9Z)-trienehydrocarbons; mixtures containing equal quantities of (3Z,6Z)-cis-9,10-epoxydienes, (3Z,9Z)-cis-6,7-epoxydienes, and (6Z,9Z)-cis-3,4-epoxydienes; (3Z,6Z)-9S,10R-epoxydienes; (3Z,6Z)-9R,10S-epoxydienes; and (3Z,6Z,9Z,11E)-3,6,9,11-nonadecatetraene.
