Identification of a New Blend of Apple Volatiles Attractive to the Apple Maggot, Rhagoletis pomonella
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) were used to identify a new blend of volatiles from apples as the key attractants for
Stimulatory Beetle Volatiles for the Asian Longhorned Beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky)
Two male-specific beetle volatiles were found that elicited strong gas chromatographic-electroantennographic responses from both sexes of Asian longhorned beetle adults, Anoplophora glabripennis. The
Evidence for contact sex recognition pheromone of the Asian longhorned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
TLDR
Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry analysis of A. glabripennis adults' whole body cuticular extracts indicates that a series of long-chain hydrocarbons comprise the cuticular waxes of both sexes.
Identification and synthesis of female sex pheromone of Oriental beetle,Anomala orientalis (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
TLDR
Flight-tunnel bioassays showed that a synthetic 90:10Z/E blend on a rubber septum was attractive and that the responses of males to this blend were equivalent toZ isomer alone, but much better than to the singleE isomer.
Lanierone: A new pheromone component fromIps pini (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in New York
TLDR
A new pheromone component, lanierone, was isolated and identified from a Porapak Q collection of volatiles from maleIps pini from New York through GC fractionation, bioassay, and spectrometry and is produced exclusively by males.
Behavioral and Antennal Responses of Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) to Volatiles From Fruit Extracts
TLDR
This is the first report of a behaviorally and antennally active blend of host fruit volatiles attractive to D. suzukii, offering promising opportunities for the development of improved monitoring and behaviourally based management tools.
Identification and Field Evaluation of Grape Shoot Volatiles Attractive to Female Grape Berry Moth (Paralobesia viteana)
TLDR
Solid-phase microextraction and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection were used to identify volatile compounds from shoots of riverbank grape that attract the female grape berry moth and found that both the 11- component blend and a seven-component blend elicited equivalent levels of upwind flight as freshly cut grape shoots.
Sex-Specific Trail Pheromone Mediates Complex Mate Finding Behavior in Anoplophora glabripennis
TLDR
The timing of production of the ratios of the pheromone blend components that produced positive responses from males coincided with the timing of sexual maturation of the female, indicating that all four chemicals are components of the trail phersomone.
The role of lanierone in the chemical ecology ofIps pini (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in California
TLDR
Five doses of lanierone (2-hydroxy-4,4,6-trimethyl-2,5-cyclohexadien-1-one) were tested with one dose of enantiomerically pure ipsdienol for activity as an aggregation pheromone ofIps pini (Say) in California, proving synergism for the kairom one of this predator.
