Woolly aphid (Eriosoma lanigerum Hausmann) (Hemiptera: Aphididae), was monitored over three growing seasons (1995--1998) to assess its abundance and management under apple IPM programs at Bathurst on the Central Tablelands of NSW, Australia. Woolly aphid infestations were found to be extremely low in IPM programs utilising mating disruption and fenoxycarb(More)
Various blends of (E,Z)-2,13-octadecadien-1-ol acetate (E,Z2,13-18: OAc), (Z)-13-octadecen-1-ol acetate (ZOAc) (two previously identified pheromone components of the currant borer,Synanthedon tipuliformis females), (E,Z)-, (Z,Z)-3,13-octadecadien-1-ol acetates (E,Z- andZ,Z3,13–18:OAc), andZ,Z-3,13-octadecadien-1-ol (Z,Z3,13–18:OH) were evaluated in field(More)
The effects of pheromone preexposure on flight behavior of male Oriental fruit mothCydia molestawere investigated in laboratory experiments using a wind-tunnel and in an orchard through insect releases at the center of a grid of pheromone traps. In the wind-tunnel experiments, the proportion of insects performing various behavioral phases was found to(More)
The diagnosis and management of chronic orofacial pain can be difficult due to the multifactorial nature of the problem involving organic, psychological and social and cultural variables. The establishment of multidisciplinary pain clinics can assist the medical practitioner in both diagnosis and treatment. A review of 185 patients complaining of chronic(More)
The composition of the sex pheromone ofSesamia grisescens was investigated using gas chromatography, electroantennograms, and field trapping. (Z)-11-Hexadecenyl acetate and (Z)-11-hexadecenol were identified in field tests as the major attractants. Trapping trials identified a 3:2 blend of these compounds as the most effective bait.
