The behavioural significance of (Z)-9-tetradecenal to male H. assulta was tested by comparing the number of moths attracted to lures containing a standard synthetic female sex pheromone with lures in which (Z)-9-tetradecenal was also added. The standard pheromone mixture used contained 1000 μg (Z)-9-hexadecenal, 50 μg (Z)-11-hexadecenal, 300 μg (Z)-9-hexadecenyl acetate and 15 μg (Z)-11-hexadecenyl acetate impregnated on rubber septa. Addition of (Z)-9-tetradecenal to the standard pheromone was… CONTINUE READING
