Fungal volatiles: Semiochemicals for stored-product beetles (Coleoptera: Cucujidae)


Responses by five species of cucujid grain beetles (mixed-sex adults) to various volatiles were assessed by means of a two-choice, pitfall olfactometer. The test volatiles were short-chain alcohols and ketones known to be produced by fungi.
