Winged (alate) virginoparae were induced in the laboratory by crowding the bird cherry-oat aphid, Rhopalosiphum padi (L.) under long-day conditions. Males and gynoparae (the winged female form that produces sexual females) were induced by short days. Electroantennogram (EAG) and behavioural responses were investigated in each of the three forms to two aphid sex pheromone components, (-)-(4aS,7S,7aR)-nepetalactol and (+)-(4aS,7S,7aR)-nepetalactone, and benzaldehyde, a volatile which is released… CONTINUE READING
