Host plant-derived esters were investigated as potential female-specific attractants for the codling moth (CM), Cydia pomonella (L.), a key pest of apples worldwide. The behavioural effects of single and combined volatile compounds and of a natural odour blend were examined using olfactometry and wind-tunnel bioassays. The apple-derived volatile butyl hexanoate attracted mated females while it was behaviourally ineffective for males over a dosage range of more than three orders of magnitude in… Expand
Specificity of codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) for the host plant kairomone, ethyl (2E,4Z)-2,4-decadienoate: field bioassays with pome fruit volatiles, analogue, and isomeric compounds.
TLDR
The pear ester is a potent attractant of both males and females, and codling moths are highly discriminating and specific in their structure-activity-based attraction to this pear-derived kairomone, which should allow this host plant kairome to contribute to new abilities for female monitoring and the potential of development of novel and highly selective control practices. Expand
Plant volatiles affect oviposition by codling moths
TLDR
Oviposition in wild codling moth females, collected as overwintering larvae from apple, pear and walnut, was stimulated by volatiles from fruit-bearing green branches of these respective hostplants, suggesting a considerable plasticity in the female response to host plant odours. Expand
Antennal and behavioural response of codling moth Cydia pomonella to plant volatiles
TLDR
Attraction of codling moth to compounds eliciting a strong antennal response was tested in a wind tunnel and male moths were best attracted to a blend of (E,E)‐α‐farnesene, (E]‐beta‐farrellesene and ethyl E,E‐2,4‐decadienoate. Expand
Positive Interaction of a Feeding Attractant and a Host Kairomone for Trapping the Codling Moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)
TLDR
The combination of odorants provides a stronger lure for female codling moths than exists with pear ester alone and increases the potential for using lures in managing this pest of pome fruits and walnuts. Expand
Cydia pomonella (L.) behavior and responses to host volatiles
Abstract Volatile compounds from apple and walnut trees were collected in the field from attached branches, bearing leaves and fruits, enclosed in plastic bags in the morning and at dusk, inExpand
A predicted sex pheromone receptor of codling moth Cydia pomonella detects the plant volatile pear ester
TLDR
The finding that a plant volatile compound, pear ester, is a specific ligand for a PR-like lepidopteran receptor adds to the understanding of insect-plant interactions and emphasizes the interaction of natural and sexual selection during the phylogenetic divergence of insect herbivores. Expand
The use of plant volatiles for host location by an ash (Fraxinus) specialist, Caloptilia fraxinella
TLDR
These experiments lay the foundation for further research to develop semiochemical lures to attract female C. fraxinella as ash seedlings, but did not elicit contact with the VOC lure in the wind tunnel. Expand
N-Butyl Sulfide as an Attractant and Coattractant for Male and Female Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
A new three-component lure comprising N-butyl sulfide, acetic acid, and pear ester that is stronger for luring codling moth females than other attractants tested is provided. Expand
Antennal and behavioral responses of female Maruca vitrata to the floral volatiles of Vigna unguiculata and Lablab purpureus
TLDR
This study suggested that female M. vitrata might use similar odors from V. unguiculata and L. purpureus to locate suitable hosts and that an artificial lure, containing the major floral volatiles released by the two host plants, might be useful in exploring efficiency monitoring and/or control strategies of this moth in the field. Expand
Synergism between aromatic compounds and green leaf volatiles derived from the host plant underlies female attraction in the oriental fruit moth
Blends of volatile compounds emitted by host plants are known to mediate the attraction of gravid female herbivores to oviposition sites, but the role of individual odor components is still littleExpand

A pear-derived kairomone with pheromonal potency that attracts male and female codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)
TLDR
The particular attribute of attracting CM females renders this kairomone a novel tool for monitoring population flight and mating–ovipositional status, and potentially a major new weapon for directly controlling CM populations. Expand
Plant odor analysis of apple: antennal response of codling moth females to apple volatiles during phenological development.
TLDR
The study of apple volatiles eliciting an antennal response, together with a survey of the seasonal change in the release of these compounds, is the first step toward the identification of volatile mediating host-finding and oviposition in codling moth females. Expand
Induction of volatile emissions from ripening apple fruits infested with Cydia pomonella and the attraction of adult females
TLDR
The results show that neonate C. pomonella larvae induce the release of E‐β‐ocimene from immature fruit compared to healthy or artificially damaged fruit, and there were no significant differences amongst these latter compounds. Expand
Identification of apple volatiles attractive to the apple maggot,Rhagoletis pomonella
TLDR
Apple volatiles from whole Red Delicious and Red Astrachan apples were found to be attractive to sexually mature apple maggot flies,Rhagoletis pomonella (Walsh), in wind tunnel bioassays and elicited similar behavioral and EAG responses. Expand
Behavioral Response of Female Codling Moths, Cydia pomonella, to Apple Volatiles
TLDR
Apple volatiles stimulated pheromone release, oviposition, and upwind orientation in female codling moths, Cydia pomonella, and mated females showed a stronger attraction response than unmated females. Expand
Host location by adult and larval codling moth and the potential for its disruption by the application of kairomones
TLDR
It is found that the application of apple extract could significantly increase the time taken for neonate larvae to locate an apple source, and the results suggest that it may be possible to disrupt the host location behaviour of both the neonate larval and adult stage by theApplication of host kairomones. Expand
Sexual dimorphism in the olfactory orientation of adult Cydia pomonella in response to α‐farnesene
TLDR
A marked sexual dimorphism was found to increasing dosages of α‐farnesene in codling moth, indicating a stronger dependency of females on plant‐derived volatiles. Expand
Specificity of olfactory responses in the tephritid fruit fly, Rhagoletis pomonella
TLDR
The results suggest that R. pomonella is adapted to perception of a compound that is typical of its hosts, and this ester, butyl hexanoate, appears in significant concentrations in the headspace of host fruit. Expand
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
Effects of azinphos-methyl and pyrifenox on reproductive performance of Cydia pomonella L. (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) at recommended rates and lower concentrations
TLDR
In contrast to pyrifenox, which did not influence the codling moth significantly, azinphos-methyl affected the insect in a number of ways: it exhibited a strong direct insecticidal activity on adults, eggs and larvae. Expand
