Halyomorpha halys (Stål) (Pentatomidae), called the brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB), is a newly invasive species in the eastern USA that is rapidly spreading from the original point of establishment in Allentown, PA. In its native range, the BMSB is reportedly attracted to methyl (E,E,Z)-2,4,6-decatrienoate, the male-produced pheromone of another pentatomid common in eastern Asia, Plautia stali Scott. In North America, Thyanta spp. are the only pentatomids known to produce methyl 2,4,6…

Semiochemically Based Monitoring of the Invasion of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug and Unexpected Attraction of the Native Green Stink Bug (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) in Maryland
ABSTRACT The brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stål) (Pentatomidae), is a newly invasive species in the eastern U. S. that is rapidly expanding its range from the original point of
A Chemical Lure for Stink Bugs (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) is used as a Kairomone by Astata occidentalis (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae)
TLDR
Wasps were captured from Jul through Sep with peak response in Aug in Washington and Georgia, and wasp capture was highest as soon as traps were deployed in late May/early Jun, and then capture peaked again during Jul.
Aldrich et al : Invasion of the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug 483 SEMIOCHEMICALLY BASED MONITORING OF THE INVASION OF THE BROWN MARMORATED STINK BUG AND UNEXPECTED ATTRACTION OF THE NATIVE GREEN STINK BUG ( HETEROPTERA : PENTATOMIDAE ) IN MARYLAND
TLDR
Monitoring populations of the brown marmorated and green stink bugs at the Agricultural Research Center, Beltsville, Maryland, for the 2004-2008 growing seasons verified that H. halys is highly attracted to methyl (E,E,Z)2,4,6-decatrienoate, and that the native green stink bug, Acrosternum hilare (Say), also is attracted to this compound.
Synergy of Aggregation Pheromone with Methyl (E,E,Z)-2,4,6-Decatrienoate in Attraction of Halyomorpha halys (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
A combination of semiochemicals that is attractive season-long for detection, monitoring, and potential control of this polyphagous invasive pest of North America and Europe is identified.
Conditioning Native Telenomus and Trissolcus (Hymenoptera: Scelionidae) Egg Parasitoids to Recognize the Exotic Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae: Halyomorpha halys)
TLDR
It was demonstrated that individual females of both parasitoids could be conditioned to H. halys egg-surface aldehydes in Y-tube olfactometer experiments, and this positive memory lasted 3–4 d, and conditioned wasps successfully parasitized fresh H. Halys eggs in no choice tests, and their offspring continued to successfully parasitize fresh BMSB eggs for 2–3 more generations.
The chemical volatiles (semiochemicals) produced by neotropical stink bugs (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae).
TLDR
Advances obtained on the behaviour and identification of sex and defensive compound of stink bugs from Brazilian crops and the application of this knowledge to manage the stink bugs are discussed.
Enhanced Response of Halyomorpha halys (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) to Its Aggregation Pheromone with Ethyl Decatrienoate
TLDR
It is reported that an analogous trienoate, ethyl (2E,4E,6Z)-decatrienoate (EDT), enhances H. halys captures when combined with PHER and the addition of EDT to lures for attracting H. Halys to traps may further improve monitoring efficiency and management strategies for this invasive species.
Attractiveness of Pheromone Components With and Without the Synergist, Methyl (2E,4E,6Z)-2,4,6-Decatrienoate, to Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
The relative insensitivity of H. halys adult and nymphal captures were relatively insensitive to the ratio of synthetic pheromone (mixed murgantiols) to MDT, as long as each was present in the trap.
Refining Pheromone Lures for the Invasive Halyomorpha halys (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) Through Collaborative Trials in the United States and Europe
TLDR
Experimental polyethylene vial dispensers did not outperform standard lure dispensers; trap captures were significantly lower in most cases; and ethyl (2E,4E,6Z)-decatrieonate (EDT), a compound that enhances captures when combined with PHER in lures, was included.
Pheromone Attraction and Cross-Attraction of Nezara, Acrosternum, and Euschistus spp. Stink Bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) in the Field
TLDR
It is shown for the first time under field conditions that N. viridula can be trapped with its reported pheromone, a 3:1 trans- to cis-(Z)-&agr;-bisabolene epoxide blend, and that stink bug traps baited with lures containing N.viridula, A. hilare, and E. servus have the greatest potential for detecting populations of N. virginity, respectively, in diversified agricultural landscapes.

Field trapping of the invasive brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys, with geometric isomers of methyl 2,4,6-decatrienoate.
TLDR
The field data suggest that the presence of the EEZ but not ZEZ isomer in the lure is essential for attraction of H. halys, and that other isomers are not antagonistic and may even be needed for maximum attraction.
Artifacts and Pheromone Blends from Nezara spp. and Other Stink Bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Isomeric compounds reportedly released by mature males of Nezara viridula as attractants for conspecific females are evidently artifacts formed by dimerization of (E)-4-oxo-2-hexenal, verifying that at least two distinctive pheromone strains exist.
Kairomone strains of Euclytia flava (Townsend), a parasitoid of stink bugs
TLDR
Evidence from GC-EAD experiments of E. flava associated with different stink bug hosts suggested that kairomone-strains of this tachinid parasitoid coexist naturally, and the mechanisms whereby parasitoids evolve kairomonally mediated host-shifts is considered.
Pentatomid bug pheromones in IPM: possible applications and limitations
TLDR
Phytophagous stink bugs communicate over shorter distances by means of substrate-borne vibrational signals, and these signals may be critically important in attracting bugs right up to pheromone sources.
Identification and attractiveness of a major pheromone component for nearctic Euschistus spp. stink bugs (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
Tests in Maryland demonstrated that parasitic tachinid flies use the Euschistus unsaturated methyl-ester as a host-finding kairomone, and it is not yet clear what role minor volatile components of EusChistus play in reproductive isolation.
Attraction of Scavenging Chloropid and Milichiid Flies (Diptera) to Metathoracic Scent Gland Compounds of Plant Bugs (Heteroptera: Miridae)
TLDR
The results suggest that females of these chloropid and milichiid flies use volatile defensive and pheromonal compounds from plant bugs as kairomones to find freshly injured or dead bugs on which to feed.
Sex Attractant Pheromone from the Neotropical Red-Shouldered Stink Bug, Thyanta perditor (F.)
TLDR
Olfactometer bioassays showed that odors from mature Thyanta perditor males attracted females but not males, indicating that like other phytophagous pentatomid bugs, the males produce a sex pheromone, suggesting that the male-production consists of 2E,4Z,6Z-10:COOMe as a single component.
Bug pheromones (Hemiptera, Heteroptera) and tachinid fly host-finding
TLDR
Tachinids in the subfamily Phasiinae commonly exploit pheromones to guide their search for potential hosts, and the findings of the current study bolster this conclusion, and provide clues to phersomones and host/parasitoid relationships yet to be discovered.
Attractant for a Beneficial Insect and Its Parasitoids: Pheromone of the Predatory Spined Soldier Bug, Podisus maculiventris (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae)
TLDR
This is the first artificial long-range pheromone for a member of the true bugs (Hemiptera: Heteroptera) and the first such pheram for a nonsocial predaceous insect.
