Adult beetles have been shown to fly to sources of both sex and aggregation pheromones, but almost all of the work on flying behavior has been conducted in the field. The female sex pheromone of Anobium punctatum de Geer, the common furniture beetle, has been identified as 2,3-dihydro-2,3,5-trimethyl-6-(1-methyl2-oxobutyl)-4H-pyran-4-one (Stegobinone) (White and Birch, 1987). This chemical is the same as the female sex pheromone of Stegobium paniceum L., the drugstore beetle (Kuwahara et al… Expand
