  journal={Journal of Chemical Ecology},
Compounds identified in sex pheromone gland extracts of femaleFumibotys fumalis (Guenee) consisted of (E,E)-10,12-tetradecadienyi acetate, (Z)-11-tetradecenyl acetate, (E)-11-tetradecenyl acetate, and (Z)-9-tetradecenyl acetate in a ratio of 100:18: 8:4, respectively. The compounds were identified by electroantennographic, gas Chromatographic, mass spectrometric, and chemical derivatization procedures. In mint fields synthetic components in gray elastomeric septa at ratios found in the sex… 

Application and evaluation of entomopathogens for control of pest insects in mint

Peppermint (Mentha piperita), native spearmint (M. spicata), and Scotch spearmint (M. cardiaca) are grown commercially for their essential oils. Essential oils, which are produced in leaf glands

Biology of Mint Root Borer (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) and Control Options on California Peppermint

A degree-day model, available through the Oregon State University, Integrated Plant Protection Center, provides information that could be used for applying preharvest insecticides targeting vulnerable life stages, and moth capture data indicated that the OSU IPPC model did not provide a reliable prediction of emergence, peak flight, and 90% flight.

Evolution of the molecular mechanisms of pheromone reception in European and Asian corn borer moths

Receptors broadlyresponsive to a class of pheromone components may provide a mechanism for variation in the male moth response that enables population level shifts in phersomone blend use.



Sex pheromone of the avocado pest,Amorbia cuneana (Walsingham) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)

The major volatile components in the extract of the female sex pheromone gland ofAmorbia cuneana consisted of (E,E)- and (E,Z)-10,12-tetradecadien-1-ol acetates. The identification was based on

Rubber Septa: a Long Lasting Substrate for (Z)-ll-hexadecenal and (Z)-9-tetradecenal, the Primary Components of the Sex Pheromone of the Tobacco Budworm

Rubber septa treated with 20 mg of (Z)-ll-hexadecenal and 2 mg of (Z)-9-tetradecenal, the primary components of the sex pheromone of Heliothis virescens (F.), caught as many males as live females

Biology of Pyrausta fumalis on Peppermint in Oregon

Pyrausta fumalis (Guenee) is a newly discovered pest of peppermint in Oregon and overwinters in the soil as a diapausing prepupa in a hibernaculum.

Sex pheromone of the armyworm,Pseudaletia unipuncta (Haworth) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

Abstract(Z)-11-Hexadecen-1-ol acetate (Z11–16∶Ac) free of theE isomer (<1%), hexadecan-1-ol acetate (16∶ Ac), and a hexadecen-1-ol [the (Z)-11 isomer based on the retention time on a Carbowax

Insect Sex Pheromones: Formulations to Increase the Stability of Conjugated Dienes

Con conjugated dienes with field lives of 2–3 days in red rubber septa are predicted to last 2-3 weeks in gray septa, because of its convenient shape, gray is the preferred substrate for minimizing isomerization of conjugations.

Sex pheromone biosynthesis of (E,E)-8,10-dodecadienol in codling mothCydia pomonella involvesE9 desaturation

(E,E)-8,10-dodecadienol is synthesized by chain shortening (β-oxidation) of palmitic acid to dodecanoic acid, followed by an unusualE9 desaturation and subsequent conversion of this intermediate into the conjugated precursor, which is finally reduced to the pheromone alcohol.

Attraction of moth species of Tortricidae, Gelechiidae, Geometridae, Drepanidae, Pyralidae, and Gracillariidae families to field traps baited with conjugated dienes

Field surveys of a series of conjugated diunsaturated straight-chain primary alcohols, acetates, and aldehydes (dienes), including the 3,5-dode-cadienyl, attracted the following species from the title families.

Strip Rotary Tillage: a Management Method for Reducing Fumibotys fumalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in Peppermint

Comparisons with standard-grown, solid-stand peppermint and peppermint subjected to strip rotary tillage showed that tillage significantly reduced pest populations by ca.

Persistence and Movement of Chlorpyrifos in Sprinkler-Irrigated Soil

Sprinkler irrigation immediately after insecticide treatment reduced the dissipation rate of chlorpyrifos compared with delayed irrigation or no irrigation, and chemical persistence was least in nonirrigated plots while vertical movement of the insecticide after sprinkler irrigation was minimal.
