Do carnivorous plants use volatiles for attracting prey insects
Whether or not the use of volatiles for attracting prey animals is linked with specific trapping mechanisms and whether carnivorous plants can be grouped into specialized ‘olfactory syndromes’ is discussed.

It is concluded that lure and kill can be highly effective in controlling small, low-density, isolated populations, and thus it has the potential to add value to long-term pest management.
Chemical identification and behavioral activity of (Z)-11-tetradecenal in an eastern North American population of the obliquebanded leafroller
Abstract The sex pheromone of the obliquebanded leafroller, Choristoneura rosaceana (Harris) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), from the Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, was investigated using chemical analysis,…
Characterization of Pheromone Blend for Grapevine Moth, Lobesia botrana by Using Flight Track Recording
Two unsaturated acetates, i.e., (E)-9-dodecenyl acetate (E9–12:Ac) and Δ11-dodocecenylacetate (Δ11– 12:Ac), increased the number of males reaching the source as well as straightness, linear velocity, and decreased the track angle of upwind flight.
Geographic Variation in Pheromone Chemistry, Antennal Electrophysiology, and Pheromone-Mediated Trap Catch of North American Populations of the Obliquebanded Leafroller
There was a trend of increasing antennal sensitivity to each of the four pheromone-gland compounds in moths from New York, Michigan, Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia.
Sprayer for Quantitative Application of Odor Stimuli
A novel device that uses ultrasound to disperse a solution of volatile chemicals as an aerosol using a motor-driven syringe and dynamically controllable speed of the syringe plunger is described.
Behavioral observations of codling moth, Cydia pomonella, in orchards permeated with synthetic pheromone
Reducing pheromone concentrations towards the upper part of the tree canopy, together with the stimulation of male flight activity by synthetic phersomone explains failures to control codling moth at high population density with current dispenser formulations.

The conditions under which a pollinator‐prey conflict may occur are analyzed, the evidence for the existence of PPCs in carnivorous plants is reviewed, and the mechanisms that may be in place to prevent or alleviate a PPC are explored.
Multicomponent Sex Pheromone in Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
This study shows that other compounds, in addition to codlemone, are involved in sex attraction of codling moth males, and offers the opportunity to enhance the behavioral activity of current dispenser formulations.
Attraction and antennal response of the common wasp, Vespula vulgaris (L.), to selected synthetic chemicals in New Zealand beech forests.
These results are the first to be reported on the EAG response and the attraction of social wasps to synthetic chemicals in New Zealand beech forests and will enable monitoring ofsocial wasp activity in beech trees.
