Field Applications of Host-Searching Kairomones to Enhance Parasitization of the Pink Bollworm (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)
TLDR
Foliar applications of highly laboratory-bioactive hexane body scale extract from Phthorimaea operculella (Zeller) and methanol scale extracts from Spodoptera exigua (Hubner) produced no significant effect on parasitization of this host by the egg-larval parasite. Expand
Host-Searching Kairomones Alter Behavior of Chelonus sp. nr. curvimaculatus, a Hymenopterous Parasite of the Pink Bollworm, Pectinophora gossypiella (Saunders)
TLDR
The scales of one natural and two factitious lepidopterous hosts were found to contain kairomones that released an intense and stereotyped searching response that included locomotory arrestment, antennation, ovipositor probing, and inverse klinokinesis upon antennal contact in female Chelonus, responsiveness persisting during their entire reproductive life.

Response of three Chelonus (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) species to kairomones in scales of six Lepidoptera
TLDR
Three species of egg–larval parasites in the genus Chelonus exhibited host-searching behavior when exposed to body scales from 6 species of Lepidoptera representing 3 families, and the broad responsiveness to host scales may detrimentally affect parasite searching ability through excessive loss of searching time.
