A previous study on the feeding responses of tsetse flies, Glossina morsitans morsitans, implicated the existence of allomonal barriers, both volatile and nonvolatile, on the nonpreferred host, waterbuck, Kobus defassa. In the present study, electroantennogram-active compounds in odors from waterbuck were compared with those of two preferred hosts of tsetse flies, buffalo, Syncerus caffer, and ox, Bos indicus. Odors from the three bovids were trapped on activated charcoal and/or reverse-phase… Expand
Responses of Glossina morsitans morsitans to Blends of Electroantennographically Active Compounds in the Odors of Its Preferred (Buffalo and Ox) and Nonpreferred (Waterbuck) Hosts
TLDR
Examination of the volatile odors by coupled gas chromatography–electroantennographic detection showed that the antennal receptors of the flies detected constituents common to the three bovids, as well as a series of compounds specific to waterbuck, including C8C13 methyl ketones, δ-octalactone, and phenols.

Blending studies with selected waterbuck odor constituents or analogues in the development of a potent repellent blend against savannah tsetse.
TLDR
The results lay down useful groundwork in the large-scale development of more effective 'push' and 'push-pull' control tactics of the tsetse flies. Expand
Identification of Cattle-Derived Volatiles that Modulate the Behavioral Response of the Biting Midge Culicoides nubeculosus
TLDR
Combined gas chromatography and electroantennographic detection analysis revealed 23 bioactive compounds from headspace collections of cattle hair and urine that modulate the behavioral response of Culicoides nubeculosus, a research model species with a similar host-range as the vectors of Bluetongue disease and Schmallenberg disease.

Repellency of tsetse-refractory waterbuck (Kobus defassa) body odour to Glossina pallidipes (Diptera: Glossinidae): assessment of relative contribution of different classes and individual constituents.
TLDR
Each multicomponent class of constituents (acids, ketones and phenols) was found to reduce fly catches, but a 14-component blend of all these compounds was more effective (reduced catches by 79-85%), indicating that each of these classes of compounds contributes incrementally to the repellency of the waterbuck odour.

Quantification of brown dog tick repellents, 2-hexanone and benzaldehyde, and release from tick-resistant beagles, Canis lupus familiaris.

Olfactory Response of Haematobia irritans (Diptera: Muscidae) to Cattle-Derived Volatile Compounds
TLDR
Gas chromatography and coupled GC-mass spectrometric analysis of samples collected from heifers revealed the presence of compounds previously reported as semiochemicals for cattle flies, including meta- and para-cresol, methylketones (C8–C11), and 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-one, which represents a first step for research into the application of semiochemistry in monitoring and control of cattle flies in Chile.

The DREAM (Deorphanization of Receptors based on Expression Alterations in odorant receptor mRNA levels) technique, combined with ortholog comparison and molecular docking, is used and predicted the putative odorant receptors (ORs) for the WRB in G. f. Expand

Responses of Glossina pallidipes and Glossina morsitans morsitans tsetse flies to analogues of δ-octalactone and selected blends.
TLDR
The results show that subtle structural changes of olfactory signals can significantly change their interactions withOlfactory receptor neurons, and either shift their potency, or change their activity from repellence to attraction. Expand

The olfactory responses of tsetse flies, Glossina spp. (Diptera: Glossinidae), to phenols and urine in the field
TLDR
In Zimbabwe, catches in traps baited with acetone and 1-octen-3-ol were increased by the addition of the synthetic mixture of eight phenols found in cattle urine to a level equal to or greater than those with natural urine, indicating that the phenols account for essentially all the attractiveness of cattle urine.

Constituents of Commiphora Rostrata and Some of Their Analogues as Maize Weevil, Sitophilus Zeamais Repellents
TLDR
The major alkanone constituents of the resin of Commiphora rostrata, 2-decanone and 2-undecanone, and a series of structural analogues were bioassayed for their repellency against the maize weevil, Sitophilus zeamais in olfactometric assays, supporting the previous suggestion that the resin constituents may play an allomonal role in the ecosystem where the plant thrives.

Chemoecological role of mammalian urine in host location by tsetse,Glossina spp. (Diptera: Glossinidae)
TLDR
Investigation of whether Glossina pallidipes and G. longipennis could distinguish between the urine of the African buffalo, cattle, and waterbuck at Nguruman in southwest Kenya found that the likelihood of tsetse either differentiating its hosts from nonhosts or locating favored hosts by the urine scent appears remote under natural conditions.

Behaviour of Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood (Diptera: Glossinidae) on waterbuck Kobus defassa Ruppel and feeding membranes smeared with waterbuck sebum indicates the presence of allomones.
TLDR
The results suggest the presence of both volatile and non-volatile allomones on waterbuck which would account for low numbers of flies found attracted to and feeding on water buck in the wild. Expand
Development of a low‐cost tsetse trap and odour baits for Glossina pallidipes and G.longipennis in Kenya
TLDR
Experiments were carried out to improve the NG2B tsetse trap, baited with acetone and cow urine, for use by rural communities to control G.pallidipes Austen and G. longi‐pennis Corti, and research on different trap cone materials showed that the degree of light transmission of the netting, rather than its colour, was the crucial factor affecting the catch.

TLDR
Fractionation of the extracts by liquid flash chromatography yielded four fractions one of which gave a seven-fold increase in trap catches in the field compared to the control traps, revealing the presence of seven simple phenols including phenol itself. Expand

TLDR
2-tridecanone and 2-undecanone were the major insecticidal compounds in L.hirsutum f.glabratum and the two unknown sesquiterpenes were acutely toxic to both species, and gland contents in the commercial tomato variety provided only a physical barrier toK.lycopersicella.exigua. Expand
