The effects of different blend ratios and temperature on the active space of the Oriental fruit moth sex pheromone


, : The effects of different blend ratios and temperature on the active space of the Oriental fruit moth sex pheromone. Physiological Entomology, 162: 211-222

In field studies conducted in New York, USA, the wing-fanning activation response of caged males of Grapholita molesta to the female-produced ratio of synthetic sex pheromone components ((Z)-8-dodecenyl acetate + 6% (E)-8-dodecenyl acetate + 3% (Z)-8-dodecenol) was compared with the response to blends containing 2, 10 and 20% (E)-8-dodecenyl acetate with 3% (Z)-8-dodecenol, and a blend containing 6% (E)-8-dodecenyl acetate with either 30 or 100% (Z)-8-dodecenol.

The tracks of males that flew in plumes of...
