Abstract. Ethyl (2E, 4Z)-2,4-decadienoate, a pear-derived volatile, is a species-specific, durable, and highly potent attractant to the codling moth (CM), Cydia pomonella (L.), a serious pest of walnuts, apples, and pears worldwide. This kairomone attracts both CM males and virgin and mated females. It is highly attractive to CM in both walnut and apple orchard contexts, but has shown limited effectiveness in a pear orchard context. Rubber septa lures loaded with ethyl (2E, 4Z)-2,4-decadienoate… 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.

MODELING THE IMPACT OF A SEX PHEROMONE/KAIROMONE ATTRACTICIDE FOR MANAGEMENT OF CODLING MOTH (CYDIA POMONELLA)
TLDR
A population model is presented that compares the relative effectiveness of a male-only versus a bisexual attracticide for codling moth and demonstrates that the use of a female attractant greatly improves the effectiveness of the “attract and kill” technique. Expand
A female-specific attractant for the codling moth, Cydia pomonella, from apple fruit volatiles
TLDR
Host plant-derived esters were investigated as potential female-specific attractants for the codling moth (CM), Cydia pomonella, a key pest of apples worldwide and suggested that female moths might be effectively trapped by means of this compound. 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
Efficacy of the pear ester as a monitoring tool for codling moth Cydia pomonella (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in New Zealand apple orchards.
TLDR
Kairomone baited traps showed some potential for monitoring the flight activity of female C. pomonella in apple orchards in two locations (Canterbury and Hawke's Bay), however, the number of male moths caught was low as compared to the number to be caught in pheromone-baited traps, and therefore the sex phersomone should continue to be used for monitoring male activity. Expand
Addition of Pear Ester With Sex Pheromone Enhances Disruption of Mating by Female Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in Walnut Orchards Treated with Meso Dispensers
TLDR
The addition of PE can effectively improve Ph-based disruption of C. pomonella in walnut orchards, and the use of low-density hand-applied dispensers can be an effective and lower-cost approach to manage this pest in the large canopy presented by walnuts. Expand
A Binary Host Plant Volatile Lure Combined with Acetic Acid to Monitor Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
Monitoring of codling moth can be marginally improved in orchards under variable management plans using a binary host plant volatile lure in combination with codlemone and acetic acid. Expand
Monitoring Codling Moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in Apple with Blends of Ethyl (E, Z)-2,4-Decadienoate and Codlemone
Abstract Studies evaluated blends of the pear-derived kairomone ethyl (E, Z)-2,4-decadienoate and codlemone, loaded in gray halobutyl septa, as attractants for adult codling moth, Cydia pomonella L.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

TLDR
It is suggested that deploying clear delta traps baited with pear ester and acetic acid can be an effective monitoring tool for female codling moth and an alternative to codlemone-baited traps in sex pheromone-treated orchards. Expand

Attractants from Bartlett pear for codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.), larvae
TLDR
Alkyl ethyl and methyl esters of (2E,4Z)-2,4-decadienoic acid found in head-space samples of ripe Bartlett pear stimulated a response from neonate larvae of the codling moth, Cydia pomonella, in both static-air Petri-plate and in upwind Y-tube and straight-tube olfactometer bioassays. Expand
Identification and attractiveness of a major pheromone component for nearctic Euschistus spp. stink bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Tests in Maryland demonstrated that parasitic tachinid flies use the Euschistus unsaturated methyl-ester as a host-finding kairomone, and it is not yet clear what role minor volatile components of EusChistus play in reproductive isolation. 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
The Role of the Hydrocarbon α-Farnesene in the Behaviour of Codling Moth Larvae and Adults
Over the past two decades, studies of the behaviour of phytophagous insects have increasingly emphasized the role of chemical cues in mediating the relationship between the insect and the food- orExpand
Volatile components of green walnut husks.
TLDR
Green walnuts that had been infested with codling moth showed appreciably higher amounts emitted for (E)-4,8-dimethyl-1,3,7-nonatriene, (E, E)- 4,8,12-trimethyl- 1,3-7,11-tridecatetraene, alpha- and beta-pinenes, sabinene,(E,E)-alpha-farnesene, and linalool. Expand
