Laboratory bioassay of the sex pheromone of the female sweet potato leaf folder brachmia macroscopa lepidoptera gelechiidae



Laboratory bioassay of the sex pheromone of the female sweet potato leaf folder brachmia macroscopa lepidoptera gelechiidae



Japanese Journal of Applied Entomology and Zoology 20(2): 77-80



A semi-quantitative laboratory bioassay method was devised for the female sex pheromone of B. macroscopa. The bioassay was carried out with male moths, 5 each in a 200-ml Erlenmeyer flask, at 25.degree. C in the light. They were kept under continuous illumination for 3 days after emergence, subsequently in the dark for 6 h, then again in the light for 30-60 min. The number of males rapidly walking or running with wing-fanning within the first 1 min after the introduction of a test sample applied on a square filter paper (1.5 .times. 1.5 cm) was used as a measure of response. Mean male response was 70% to the pheromone at the concentration of 0.1 female equivalent and .apprx. 50% at the 0.01 female equivalent.
