The behavioral responses of virgin female Mexican fruit flies elicited by components and combinations of the components of male-produced pheromone were measured in a laboratory wind-tunnel bioassay where test chemicals were applied to the undersides of some leaves on a treated tree but to none of the leaves of a control tree. Only treatments containing at least (Z)-3-nonenol and/or (Z,Z)-3,6-nonadienol in combination with (S,S)-(−)-epianastrephin elicited strong behavioral responses. Responses… CONTINUE READING
