Efficiency of n-octyl-acetate, 2-heptanone and citronellal in repelling bees from basil (Ocimum sellowii - Labiatae)

Efficiency of n-octyl-acetate, 2-heptanone and citronellal in repelling bees from basil (Ocimum sellowii - Labiatae)

Brazilian Archives of Biology and Technology 47(1): 121-125

O. sellowi plants were sprayed with n-octyl-acetate, 2-heptanone and citronellal at 2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10% dilutions at 10.00 and 14.00 h in a field experiment conducted in Sao Paulo, Brazil to determine the effects of the repellents on honey bees (Apis mellifera). In a related experiment, 20% n-octyl-acetate, 2-heptanone and citronellal were diluted in water and glycerol before using them in the spray treatments. The frequency and behaviour of insect visitors on the crop were also determined.
