The major component of the trail pheromone of the South American leaf-cutting ant,Atta sexdens rubropilosa Forel, is 3-ethyl-2,5-dimethylpyrazine (II). Methyl and ethyl phenylacetate and methyl 4-methylpyrrole-2-carboxylate (I), which is the major component of the trail pheromone ofA. texana (Buckley) andA. cephalotes (L.), were also identified and may be… (More)
The most active component of the trail pheromone of the leafcutting ant,Acromyrmex octospinosus, is methyl 4-methylpyrrole-2-carboxylate (I). Two pyrazine isomers (II) and (III) are present but inactive.
1 - Sexual brood and adults were taken from laboratory colonies ofAcromyrmex octospinosus (Reich) for observation and analysis. 2 - The reproductive castes were much larger than the workers. 3 - A sex difference in lipid metabolism was found between the reproductive castes, adult gynes possessing seven times the amount of lipid found in males. 4 - Starved… (More)
