Attractiveness of trans-trimedlure and its four isomers in field tests with the Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Attractiveness of trans-trimedlure and its four isomers in field tests with the Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)



Journal of Economic Entomology, 803: 617-620



Trimedlure is the attractant for males of Ceratitis capitata and comprises 8 isomers. trans-Trimedlure is a mixture of 4 isomers and is the attractive component. The 4 trans-isomers were isolated in a purity of about 99%, and their relative attractiveness to C. capitata was determined in field tests on macadamias in Hawaii. The relative attractiveness of the 4 isomers was trimedlure-C > trimedlure-A > trimedlure-B1 > trimedlure-B2.
