Previous studies have shown that prepupae/pupae and dust/frass from Hypothenemus hampei (Ferrari) reared on coffee berries were attractive to its parasitoid Prorops nasuta Waterston, while the same biological materials obtained from an artificial diet were not. In this study, we identified the volatiles from prepupae/pupae and dust/frass from H. hampei reared on Coffea canephora Pierre ex Froehner berries and artificial diet by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC–MS… CONTINUE READING
