Apple volatiles from whole Red Delicious and Red Astrachan apples were found to be attractive to sexually mature apple maggot flies,Rhagoletis pomonella (Walsh), in wind tunnel bioassays. Extracted volatiles elicited directed upwind movement towards the source and significantly increased the number of male and female flies arriving at the source. A behaviorally active fraction was obtained from crude extract by gas-liquid chromatography and assayed in two types of wind tunnels and by… Expand
Identification of a New Blend of Apple Volatiles Attractive to the Apple Maggot, Rhagoletis pomonella
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) were used to identify a new blend of volatiles from apples as the key attractants forExpand
Attraction of Apple Maggot Flies (Diptera: Tephritidae) to Synthetic Fruit Volatile Compounds and Food Attractants in Michigan Apple Orchards
TLDR
It is provided further evidence that baiting red-sticky sphere traps with the volatile blend without ammonium bait additives creates a highly effective and selective device for capturing apple maggot flies. Expand
Identification of Grape Juice Aroma Volatiles and Attractiveness to the Mexican Fruit Fly (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
Results demonstrate that most of the attractive principals of the juice were identified and mixed into an attractive blend that matched the headspace volatiles profile of the grape juice. Expand
A female-specific attractant for the codling moth, Cydia pomonella, from apple fruit volatiles
TLDR
Host plant-derived esters were investigated as potential female-specific attractants for the codling moth (CM), Cydia pomonella, a key pest of apples worldwide and suggested that female moths might be effectively trapped by means of this compound. Expand
Volatiles from apple trees infested with light brown apple moth larvae attract the parasitoid Dolichogenidia tasmanica.
TLDR
The attraction of a parasitoid to infested apple seedlings in the laboratory and in the field to apple and many other plants in at least six families supports considerable generality of the tritrophic signaling process. Expand
Identification of Host Fruit Volatiles from Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) Attractive to Dogwood-Origin Rhagoletis pomonella Flies
TLDR
This study adds to previous ones showing that populations of Rhagoletispomonella flies infesting apple, hawthorn, and flowering dogwood fruit are attracted to unique mixtures of fruit volatiles, supporting the hypothesis that host fruit odors could be key traits in sympatric host shifts and establishing host fidelity within members of the Rhago letispom onella species complex. Expand
Response of female Cydia molesta (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) to plant derived volatiles.
TLDR
Peach shoot volatiles were attractive to mated female oriental fruit moth, Cydia molesta (Busck), in a dual choice arena and elicited a similar attractant effect as the full natural blend from peach shoots as well as the bioactive fraction. Expand
Identification of Host Fruit Volatiles from Hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) Attractive to Hawthorn-Origin Rhagoletis pomonella Flies
Solid-phase microextraction (SPME) and gas chromatography coupled with electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) were used to identify volatile compounds from hawthorn fruit (Crataegus spp.) acting asExpand
Identification of a New Blend of Host Fruit Volatiles from Red Downy Hawthorn, Crataegus mollis, Attractive to Rhagoletis pomonella Flies from the Northeastern United States
TLDR
The hypothesis that in addition to providing specificity to the odor blends of the northern and southern hawthorn populations, the presence of the significant amounts of esters identified from the headspace of domesticated apple might have provided a source of standing variation that could help explain the shift in host preference by C. mollis-infesting flies to introduced apple in the mid-1800’s is supported. Expand
Identification of Host Fruit Volatiles from Three Mayhaw Species (Crataegus Series Aestivales) Attractive to Mayhaw-Origin Rhagoletis pomonella Flies in the Southern United States
TLDR
The results discount the possibility that the apple fly was “pre-assembled” and originated via a recent introduction of southern mayhaw flies predisposed to accepting apple, and are consistent with the possibility ofSouthern mayhaw-infesting fly host races. Expand

TLDR
The potential utility of the unidentified attractive component(s) of the fruit odor in development of improved devices for monitoring fly populations and new, integrated methods of population management are discussed. Expand
Field Tests of the Response of Rhagoletis pomonella to Apples
TLDR
Field tests showed that during the first 2 weeks of August more sexually mature apple maggot flies were captured in apple trees containing real fruit than in trees without fruit or trees containing artificial apples, and suggests that factors other than visual stimuli are involved. Expand
