Emission of (Z)-8-dodecenyl acetate [7% (E) isomer] from hollow fiber dispensers at 0.15 g/ha/per day from 1700 points (units of 10 fibers)/ha effects complete disruption of male Grapholitha molesta (Busck) attraction to synthetic lure and virgin females. Attraction of G. prunivora (Walsh) to synthetic lures is also completely disrupted. Emission of (E,E)-8,10-dodecadien-1-ol at 0.05 g/ha per day from 1700 points/ha effects complete disruption of male Laspeyresia pomonella (L.) attraction to synthetic pheromone, to virgin females and prevents mating with tethered females.
