ABSTRACT The lacewing Chrysopa phyllochroma Waesmael is a polyphagous predator of many pests. Releasing lacewings is an important component of biological control programs, but it is difficult to establish populations on field crops. Electrophysiological and behavioral responses to 10 common plant volatiles were recorded to screen for lacewing-attracting compounds. Electroantennographic assays indicated that all of the tested compounds elicited responses from C. phyllochroma. Three green-leaf… 
Electrophysiological and behavioral responses of Bradysia odoriphaga (Diptera: Sciaridae) to volatiles from its Host Plant, Chinese Chives (Allium tuberosum Rottler ex Spreng)
TLDR
Results indicate that methyl allyldisulfide and diallyl disulfide, either alone or in combination, influence the host-seeking behavior of B. odoriphaga.
Botanical Volatiles Selection in Mediating Electrophysiological Responses and Reproductive Behaviors for the Fall Webworm Moth Hyphantria cunea
TLDR
Initial evidence is provided showing that universal host-derived volatile cues are essential for H. cunea moth in terms of mating, which can also provide insights into the development of botanical attractants.
Behavior and Electrophysiological Response of Gravid and Non-Gravid Lucilia cuprina (Diptera: Calliphoridae) to Carrion-Associated Compounds
TLDR
The responses of the Australian blow fly, Lucilia cuprina, to the carrion-associated compounds dimethyl trisulfide (DMTS), butyric acid, 1-octen-3-ol and indole are studied to suggest that DMTS is an important semiochemical for L. cuprina to locate carRion resources, and has potential for use in fly traps for flystrike control.
Three odorant binding proteins may regulate the behavioural response of Chrysopa pallens to plant volatiles and the aphid alarm pheromone (E)‐β‐farnesene
TLDR
These studies provide new insights into the interrelationships amongst C. pallens, its prey and the host plants.
Effects of trans-2-hexenal on reproduction, growth and behaviour and efficacy against the pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus.
TLDR
Trans-2-Hexenal had significant nematicidal activity against B. xylophilus, providing a basis for elucidation of the mode of action of trans- 2-hexenal against plant-parasitic nematodes in future studies.
Field Trapping of Predaceous Insects With Synthetic Herbivore-Induced Plant Volatiles in Cotton Fields
TLDR
Nine herbivore-induced plant volatiles and one methyl jasmonate were field-tested for their attractiveness to the main predators in cotton fields of North China in 2 yr and it was found that indole significantly attracted the ladybird beetle P. japonica.
Evidence of Premating Isolation Between Two Sibling Moths: Ectropis grisescens and Ectropis obliqua (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)
TLDR
The presence or absence of Z3,epo6,Z9-19:H played a central role in the premating isolation of these two sibling species as well as two GC-EAD-active compounds in E. obliqua.
Floral Volatiles from Vigna unguiculata Are Olfactory and Gustatory Stimulants for Oviposition by the Bean Pod Borer Moth Maruca vitrata
TLDR
The role of floral odors from cowpea, Vigna unguiculata, in mediating oviposition of the bean pod borer moth, Maruca vitrata, is investigated, believed to be the first demonstration in a moth where β-caryophyllene from the host plant was able to mediate an Oviposition response.
Biological Activity of trans-2-Hexenal Against the Storage Insect Pest Tribolium castaneum (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) and Mycotoxigenic Storage Fungi
TLDR
The potential of trans-2-hexenal for simultaneously controlling pests and pathogens, which could reduce its application frequency in grains and decrease pesticide resistance risks is indicated.
From laboratory to field: electro-antennographic and behavioral responsiveness of two insect predators to methyl salicylate
TLDR
The hypothesis that two agriculturally important predatory insects respond physiologically and behaviorally to MeSA, which may lead to increased predation and oviposition is addressed, and predator responses to HIPVs can be complex in real agricultural settings is demonstrated.

Plant Volatiles Influence Electrophysiological and Behavioral Responses of Lygus hesperus
TLDR
Electantennogram (EAG) analyses indicated that antennae responded to most plant volatiles included in the test, and that when gender differences were observed, males usually were more responsive than females, and EAG responses, however, were not always consistent with behavioral assays.
Behavioural and electrophysiological responses of Pantomorus cervinus (Boheman) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) to host plant volatiles
TLDR
Fuller's rose weevil (FRW), a polyphagous pest of citrus and other horticultural plants, was studied in laboratory assays designed to identify potential semiochemicals from host plants that might be exploited for weevil pest management.
Iridodial: a powerful attractant for the green lacewing, Chrysopa septempunctata (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
TLDR
Field trapping experiments in northeast China showed that (1R,2S,5R,8R)-iridodial is a powerful attractant for C. septempunctata, and may have great potential for enhanced biological control of garden, agricultural, and forest insect pests.
Olfactory Reactions of the Twelve-Spotted Lady Beetle, Coleomegilla maculata and the Green Lacewing, Chrysoperla carnea to Semiochemicals Released from Their Prey and Host Plant: Electroantennogram and Behavioral Responses
TLDR
Male and female antennae of both species exhibited similar dose–response curves to most of the selected compounds, although female C. maculata antennae exhibited higher thresholds in response to several compounds including α-terpineol, (Z)-3-hexenol, and (4aS,7S, 7aR)-nepetalactone.
Response of economically important aphids to components of Hemizygia petiolata essential oil.
TLDR
It was shown that minor components in the oil caused inhibition of the alarm response for M. persicae and A. pisum, and the grain aphid, Sitobion avenae F, was not only repelled by (E)-beta-farnesene but also by (-)-germacrene D.
Male-Produced Pheromone of the Green Lacewing, Chrysopa nigricornis
TLDR
Assays indicated that the lacewing pheromone, iridodial, loaded onto either rubber septa or as a binary blend with MS in polyethylene bags could last at least 5 wk in the field during the summer season.
Response of The Lacewing Chrysopa cognata to Pheromones of its Aphid Prey
TLDR
The lacewing Chrysopa cognata, one of the principal predators of aphids in Korea, was tested for responses to the aphid sex pheromone components and no attraction was observed to (E)-β-farnesene.
Electroantennogram and oviposition responses of Epiphyas postvittana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) to plant volatiles
TLDR
Electroantennogram responses of male and female Epiphyas postvittana (lightbrown apple moth) responses to plant volatiles delivered from either filter paper or a gas chromatograph revealed deterred oviposition, whereas hexanal, linalool, nonanol, octanol, and nonanal were attractants.
Behavioral and Electrophysiological Responses of Natural Enemies to Synomones from Tea Shoots and Kairomones from Tea Aphids, Toxoptera aurantii
TLDR
It is demonstrated that tea shoot–aphid complexes emit volatile synomones, while the odors from tea aphids, aphid cuticle extracts, and tea aphid honeydew contain kairomones to which the natural enemies show a logistic dose–response.
