Males of Rhyzopertha dominica (F.) (Coleoptera: Bostrichidae) produce the aggregation pheromones dominicalure-1 (DL1) and dominicalure-2 (DL2), which attract both sexes of the beetle to food source and for mating. The insect only releases these male-produced pheromones during feeding, and volatile emissions from other insect or plant species are not known to contain DL1 or DL2. Studies have suggested that overcrowding and the nutritional state of the adult could have an important effect upon… CONTINUE READING
