Olfactory sensitivity of the southern pine beetle,Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann, to compounds isolated from the mid/hindguts of newly emerged conspeciÞc adults was assayed with coupled gas chromatography-electroantennographic detection. All previously reported pheromones for D. frontalis plus eight additional compounds (fenchyl alcohol, myrtenal, cis-verbenol, transpinocarveol, acetophenone, trans-myrtanol, cis-myrtanol, and 2-phenylethanol) consistently elicited antennal responses from at… CONTINUE READING
