Electro antennograms of the american cockroach orthoptera blattidae to odorous straight chain compounds



Electro antennograms of the american cockroach orthoptera blattidae to odorous straight chain compounds



Applied Entomology and Zoology 11(3): 222-228



Electroantennograms (EAG) to 43 kinds of straight chain compounds were recorded from antennae of adult American cockroaches [Periplaneta americana]. The compounds having a hydroxyl or ketone gorup produced significant EAG responses. Compounds consisting of 6 carbons in both series gave the strongest response. Although the amplitude of the responses obtained from male antennae was much larger than that from females, there was basically no sex difference between the responses to the odorous compounds tested.
