Control of uzi fly by semiochemicals

Control of uzi fly by semiochemicals

Current Science, India 55(20): 1038-1040

The presence of a female sex pheromone of the tachinid Tricholyga bombycis a parasitoid of Bombyx mori, and a kairomone of B. mori which is attractive to gravid E. sorbillans females are reported. Male flies were attracted to female flies and to cotton balls with hexane, acetone or absolute alcohol washings of female flies in a Y-tube olfactometer. Gravid mated females were attracted to silkworms but no such attraction was observed in male or virgin female flies.
