CONTROL OF MOTH PESTS BY MATING DISRUPTION: Successes and Constraints
TLDR
The efficacy of this technology is related principally to the motility of mated females into the area to be managed, the initial population levels of the pest, and the release characteristics of the formulation. Expand
Odor Plumes and How Insects Use Them
TLDR
Odor plumes and how insects use them, Odor plume and how Insects use them and how animals and birds use them are discussed. Expand
Fine-scale structure of pheromone plumes modulates upwind orientation of flying moths
IN studies of moths flying upwind to a pheromone source, attention has focused on the influence on flight orientation of the composition1,2 and concentration3,4 of the chemical message, and ofExpand
Filament-Based Atmospheric Dispersion Model to Achieve Short Time-Scale Structure of Odor Plumes
This article presents the theoretical motivation, implementation approach, and example validation results for a computationally efficient plume simulation model, designed to replicate both theExpand
Parasitoid foraging and learning.
TLDR
The present chapter addresses the foraging behavior of parasitoids as influenced by learning as well as their importance in insect management. Expand
Navigational Strategies Used by Insects to Find Distant, Wind-Borne Sources of Odor
TLDR
Experiments, especially those undertaken in the natural wind and odor environments of the organisms in question and those directed at understanding the neural processing that underlie plume tracking, promise to enhance the understanding of this remarkable behavior. Expand
Analysis of Pheromone-Mediated Behaviors in Male Grapholitha molesta, the Oriental Fruit Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
There was a strong correlation between pheromone plume behaviors of pre-flight wing fanning while walking and upwind flight, suggesting that these behaviors may be closely associated, functioning to locate the pherOMone source by ground or air, respectively. Expand
Carbon dioxide instantly sensitizes female yellow fever mosquitoes to human skin odours
TLDR
CO2 functions as a `releaser' for a higher sensitivity and responsiveness to skin odours in freely flying mosquitoes, and is reflected in flight velocity, track angle, turning rate upon entering and exiting the broad odour plume and, ultimately, in the source-finding rate. Expand
Sex pheromone of the european corn borer,Ostrinia nubilalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), in New York
TLDR
Two pheromone components of the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis (Hübner), from New York are identified and this isomeric blend extracted from the female abdominal tips is very similar to the most attractive synthetic mixture in the field in New York. Expand
Responses of Lepidoptera to Synthetic Sex Pheromone Chemicals and Their Analogues
TLDR
This chapter discusses field trapping and field observation techniques in elucidating sex pheromone responses of Lepidoptera, as well as the modulation of these reactions by various chemicals that are not constituents of the natural phersomone system. Expand
