Cashew volatiles mediate short-range location responses in Pseudotheraptus wayi (Heteroptera: Coreidae).


Pseudotheraptus wayi Brown (Heteroptera: Coreidae) is a major pest of cashew in East Africa, but little is known about its chemical ecology. Here, we show by using behavioral assays and chemical analysis that some components of cashew leaf volatiles are attractants for male P. wayi. By using a petri dish arena-EthoVision video-tracking assay, males oriented… (More)
