Hymenopterous parasitoids of herbivorous insects can be useful biocontrol agents in integrated pest management strategies. However, the potential effects on these beneficials of new components in such strategies are often neglected. Essential oil of lavender, Lavendula angustifolia (Miller) (Lamiaceae), has recently been identified as a potential repellent in new control strategies being developed for the pollen beetle Meligethes aeneus (Fabricius) (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae), a major pest of… Expand

Figures from this paper

Electrophysiological and behavioural responses of the pollen beetle, Meligethes aeneus, to volatiles from a non-host plant, lavender, Lavandula angustifolia (Lamiaceae)
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify the active components in L. angustifolia oil, and to investigate the behaviour of M. aeneus to these chemicals, to establish the most effective use of repellent stimuli to disrupt colonisation of oilseed rape crops. Expand
Effects of non‐host plant odour on Meligethes aeneus during immigration to oilseed rape
TLDR
Results showed that oilseed rape plants treated with lavender odour were less colonised by M. aeneus in comparison with an untreated control, but that the treatment effect was much reduced if the lavender Odour was applied after colonisation. Expand
Yeheb (Cordeauxiaedulis) extract deters feeding and oviposition of Plutella xylostella and attracts its natural enemy
TLDR
The combined negative effects of YE on DBM fitness together with positive effects on the parasitoid show that yeheb is a potential source of compounds for use in integrated pest management to control damage caused by DBM. Expand
Repellency of lavender oil and linalool against spot clothing wax cicada, Lycorma delicatula (Hemiptera: Fulgoridae) and their electrophysiological responses
TLDR
The repellent effect of 5 μl doses of ten essential oils against Lycorma delicatula 4th nymphs using an olfactometer showed significant repellency to lavender oil, although the latter is less potent to 1st instar nymphS. Expand
Attraction response of spot clothing wax cicada, Lycorma delicatula (Hemiptera: Fulgoridae) to spearmint oil
TLDR
Spearmint oil may be effective as an attractant for control of L. delicatula populations, and antennae of only fourth instar nymphs and female adults responded to carvone in electrophysiological response to spearmintOil. Expand
Evaluating the effect of seven plant essential oils on pollen beetle (Brassicogethes aeneus) survival and mobility
TLDR
Topical dosing tests showed the EO of the inner bark of Cinnamomum verum (cinnamon) to be the most effective EO examined in this study, and it is suggested that further studies on B. aeneus populations should examine the effect of certain pure compounds associated with the most promising EOs in order to reveal optimal chemical composition and ratios to exploit. Expand
Utilizing associational resistance for biocontrol: impacted by temperature, supported by indirect defence
TLDR
The generality of the finding on temperature as a potential regulating mechanism for the efficacy of semivolatile emitter-based associational resistance towards specialist pest larval damage should be further studied in natural and agricultural associations. Expand
Semiochemical-based alternatives to synthetic toxicant insecticides for pollen beetle management
TLDR
The life cycle of the pollen beetle Brassicogethes aeneus is reviewed and the current knowledge of any behaviour mediated by semiochemicals in this species is described. Expand
Crop Location by Oilseed Rape Pests and Host Location by Their Parasitoids
TLDR
Evidence suggests that odour-mediated upwind anemotaxis is used by the pests to locating the crop and their host plant, as well as by their parasitoids to locate the crop, the habitat of their host larvae, from a distance, while visual cues are important for orientation at closer range. Expand
How do sex and sexual maturation influence the response of Monochamus galloprovincialis to host odours?
TLDR
The findings suggest that beetles use both visual and chemical cues to locate pine trees but that relevant stimuli likely differ between beetles of different sex and sexual maturation status and question the implementation of precautionary clear‐cuts around infested trees for limiting the spread of PWN.

Response of the pollen beetle Meligethes aeneus to volatiles emitted by intact plants and conspecifics
TLDR
The results indicate that M. aeneus is able to locate its host plant by olfactory stimuli in the early bud‐stage, i.e. in that stage in which the infestation begins in the field and when the typical yellow colour and floral scent of oilseed‐rape are absent. Expand
Behavioural responses in three ichneumonid pollen beetle parasitoids to volatiles emitted from different phenological stages of oilseed rape
TLDR
Odours can be reliable cues for differentiating between oilseed rape in the bud and flowering stage and may reflect differences in their biology and may be involved in the niche segregation of these often coexisting species. Expand
The effects of non‐host plant essential oil volatiles on the behaviour of the pollen beetle Meligethes aeneus
TLDR
The attraction to host plant volatiles was reduced by the addition of non‐host plant vol atiles, but in addition to masking the host plantvolatiles, theNon‐host volatile were avoided when these were presented alone, which is encouraging for the potential use of non-host plants within a push‐pull strategy to reduce the pest colonisation of crops.

Behavioural and chemical ecology of Meligethes aeneus : effects of non-host plant volatiles
The research in this thesis aims to develop an understanding of the olfactory aspects of host-location behaviour in the pest beetle Meligethes aeneus Fab., and to investigate the use of non-hostExpand
Plant essential oils as arrestants and repellents for neonate larvae of the codling moth (Lepidoptera : Tortricidae)
TLDR
These materials, or their active ingredients, may be useful in protecting fruit from attack by codling moth larvae by preventing larvae from orienting to and arriving at fruit. Expand
Exploitation of host plant preferences in pest management strategies for oilseed rape (Brassica napus)
TLDR
Turnip rape showed good potential as a trap crop for oilseed rape pests, particularly the pollen beetle as its odour was more attractive to both pests than that of oilseed Rape, and the development of a pest control regime based on this strategy is discussed. Expand
Labiate essential oils affecting host selection and acceptance of Thrips tabaci lindeman
Essential oils from plants within the Lamiaceae family at several concentrations were evaluated for their repellent and deterrent properties against Thrips tabaci Lindeman (Thysanoptera: Thripidae),Expand
Laboratory and field response of the pollen beetle, Meligethes aeneus, to the odour of oilseed rape
TLDR
Pollen beetles can use odour‐mediated upwind anemotaxis to locate oilseed rape plants from distances of at least 20 m over open ground. Expand
Influence of plant volatiles on feeding damage caused by the onion thrips Thrips tabaci
TLDR
Evaluation of the potential of biologically active plant volatiles against T. tabaci may provide a new approach to the development of antifeedants and/or natural insecticides for use in both biological and integrated pest management strategies. Expand
The role of pollen odour in the attraction of pollen beetles to oilseed rape flowers
TLDR
The hypothesis that pollen‐seeking insects use pollen odour cues to locate this food source is supported, suggesting that at least part of the attractive odour of oilseed rape flowers emanates from pollen. Expand
