Pheromones and attractants of click beetles: an overview
- M. Tóth
- ChemistryJournal of Pest Science
A brief overview is presented on the identification of click beetle pheromones, new questions arising in the categorization of these phersomones into sex or aggregation phermones, options for the development of female-targeted lures, and application perspectives.
The efficacy of the new Agriotes sex pheromone traps in detecting wireworm population levels in different european countries
For all species traps were able to detect wireworm populations below those that can be reliably detected using soil sampling and bait trapping, and pheromone traps proved to be effective in detecting the regional variations of swarming patterns of the same species.
Sex pheromone of European corn borer.
Sex gland extracts ofOstrinia nubilalis females collected in the wild or laboratory-reared from Switzerland, Italy, and Hungary were analyzed and small amounts of (Z)-11-hexadecenyl acetate were detected in female glands of theE strain; however, no effect of this compound could be observed in the field.

Establishing brain functional laterality in adult mice through unilateral gene manipulation in the embryonic cortex through unilateral Gene Manipulation of the Embryonic cortex is established.
Importance of visual and chemical cues in the development of an attractant trap for Epicometis (Tropinota) hirta Poda (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)
Seasonal flight dynamics of the apple clearwing moth (Synanthedon myopaeformis Borkh., Lepidoptera: Sesiidae) based on catches in pheromone traps
Sticky and funnel traps may be successfully used for monitoring flight activity of apple clearwing moth and showed satisfactory effectiveness and selectivity.
Identification of pheromones and optimization of bait composition for click beetle pests (Coleoptera: Elateridae) in Central and Western Europe.
Based on analysis of pheromone gland extracts, highly attractive new baits have been developed for three click beetle pests and there were no differences in peromone composition or response to the optimized bait between the two morphological forms of A ustulatus.
Optimization of a Phenylacetaldehyde-Based Attractant for Common Green Lacewings (Chrysoperla carnea s.l.)
The ternary blend proved to be more attractive than β-caryophyllene, 2-phenylethanol, or 3-methyl eugenol (compounds previously described as attractants for chrysopids) on their own, and no influence on catches was recorded when these compounds were added as fourth components to the ternARY blend.
Interaction of acetic acid and phenylacetaldehyde as attractants for trapping pest species of moths (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae).
This research provides a new two-component lure for the alfalfa looper A. californica and for the armyworm S. albula for potential use in pest management.

In field tests in Europe, traps baited with a blend of isoamyl alcohol, acetic acid, and isobutanol (compounds previously found attractive to a number of noctuids in North America) caught the following noctuid moths: Agrotis segetum Schiff, Amathes (Xestia) c-nigrum L., Apatele rumicis, and Trachea atriplicis.
