Smells good, feels good: oviposition of Chrysoperla carnea-complex lacewings can be concentrated locally in the field with a combination of appropriate olfactory and tactile stimuli
Larvae of common green lacewings (Chrysoperla carnea species-complex) are important generalist predators, and can serve as valuable biological control agents. Since only larvae are predatory,Expand

Performance of traps baited with pear ester-based lures vs. pheromone baited ones for monitoring codling moth Cydia pomonella L. in Hungary
Traps baited with pear ester + acetic acid were capable of monitoring the codling moth although caught fewer specimens than pheromone baited traps. The general flight patterns recorded in pear esterExpand
