The present research was undertaken to screen for field activity of ethyl-(E,Z)-2,4-decadienoate (pear ester, PE), acetic acid (AA) and the blend of this two components (PEAA) at locations, where high diversity of microlepidopteran species was presumed. By tendency of relative catches, microlepidopterans captured could be divided into two groups: in the first group the PEAA blend resulted in higher catches than single components (Hedya nubiferana, Ypsolopha scabrella and Notocelia trimaculana…

Conspecific and Heterogeneric Lacewings Respond to (Z)-4-Tridecene Identified from Chrysopa formosa (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
The results suggest that (Z)-4-tridecene may serve as a general warning signal among multiple green lacewing species.
Development of multi‐component non‐sex pheromone blends to monitor both sexes of Cydia pomonella (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
Five new quaternary combination compounds when added to the 3K core blend performed similarly to the 4K lure (male, females, and total moths); further studies should expand these results through tests of these and other new blends with a range of component ratios and total loading amounts.


Traps baited with pear ester and acetic acid attract both sexes of Hedya nubiferana (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
The PEAA lure showed potential for future practical applications as a female‐targeted lure for H. nubiferana and is the first well‐documented report on the attraction ofPEAA lure for a tortricid species other than codling moth.

It is suggested that deploying clear delta traps baited with pear ester and acetic acid can be an effective monitoring tool for female codling moth and an alternative to codlemone-baited traps in sex pheromone-treated orchards.
Chemical Attractants for Females of Pest Pyralids and Phycitids (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae, Phycitidae)
In field trapping tests conducted in Hungary large numbers of Pyralis costalis F. farinalis L., a well-known stored product pest, were attracted to traps baited with iso-amyl alcohol (3-methyl-1-butanol) and acetic acid, and the capture of the two-component blend was significantly higher than the catch in traps with the single com­po­nents.
A Diversity of Moths (Lepidoptera) Trapped with Two Feeding Attractants
Both of these lures hold advantages for trapping different types of moths, and both lures might be used in a complementary way to sample moth biodiversity.
Use of Glacial Acetic Acid to Enhance Bisexual Monitoring of Tortricid Pests With Kairomone Lures in Pome Fruits
Trap baited with pear ester, sex pheromone, and GAA for monitoring codling moth were effective in classifying pest pressure of both leafroller species within orchards and the evaporation rate of GAA co-lures was an important factor affecting moth catches.
Female‐targeted attractant containing pear ester for Synanthedon myopaeformis
The first report of attractiveness of a lure containing pear ester for non‐tortricid Lepidoptera is reported, suggesting that the compound may be exploited as a host location stimulus by a wider array of insects than was indicated previously.
Interaction of acetic acid and phenylacetaldehyde as attractants for trapping pest species of moths (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae).
This research provides a new two-component lure for the alfalfa looper A. californica and for the armyworm S. albula for potential use in pest management.
A pear-derived kairomone with pheromonal potency that attracts male and female codling moth, Cydia pomonella (L.)
The particular attribute of attracting CM females renders this kairomone a novel tool for monitoring population flight and mating–ovipositional status, and potentially a major new weapon for directly controlling CM populations.
Mating disruption of Spilonota ocellana and other apple orchard tortricids using a multispecies reservoir dispenser.
A new mating disruption formulation for population control of a wide range of tortricid pests, including Spilonota ocellana, was tested in Swedish apple orchards and showed a significant effect on field populations of the leafroller species complex.
Field Attraction of Codling Moths (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) to Apple and Pear Fruit, and Quantitation of Kairomones from Attractive Fruit
Male and female codling moths, Cydia pomonella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) responded to fruit-baited traps in orchards, and females captured in traps baited with ripe apples or pears were primarily mated and had developing or mature eggs.
