Laboratory bioassay of the sex pheromone of the female eastern Spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)



Laboratory bioassay of the sex pheromone of the female eastern Spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)



Canad. Ent, 103: 5, 631-7



Describes a simple and inexpensive olfactometer for laboratory bioassays of the sex pheromone of C. fumiferana. The number of males buzzing after the introduction of the sample into the air-stream of the olfactometer was used as a measure of response. Males kept under constant illumination showed maximum response when 2-3 days old. Under natural light, males showed a circadian rhythm, with peak response shortly after dark, and a lesser peak in mid-morning.
