Relationships amongst sex ratio of progeny in Anastatus disparis (Hymenoptera: Eupelmidae), sperm depletion and decreased fecundity
TLDR
Overall, both sperm depletion and decreased fecundity played a role in determining the sex ratio of progeny from older mothers, suggesting that the increase in sex ratio amongst offspring was mainly due to decreased fertility in older maternal A. disparis.
(R)-(+)-citronellal identified as a female-produced sex pheromone of Aromia bungii Faldermann (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
TLDR
The efficiency of using (R)-(+)-citronellal, alone or in combination with other attractants, to monitor and control A. bungii now requires further field experimentation and optimisation.
Anatomical Study on the Morphology of the Reproductive Systems and the Scale Brushes of Dioryctria rubella Hampson (Pyralidae, Phycitinae)
TLDR
The morphology of the reproductive systems and the coupling mechanism between the male and the female genitalia during copulation in Dioryctria rubella Hampson are described and the spines on the inner surface of the ductus bursae and the cervix bursa are complementary to that of cornuti on the outer surface of vesica in position and direction, which elucidates the matching mechanism.

Optimized composite microspheres containing insecticide and attractant for control of Rhagoletis batava obseuriosa Kol. (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
Using composite microspheres has potential as an effective method for control of RBO and has a longer release period than when the components were not encapsulated.
