Abstract The leaf beetle Ambrostoma quadriimpressum Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is a major pest of elm (Ulmus; Rosales: Ulmaceae) in eastern Asia, and there is currently no effective, environmentally friendly, chemical method for its control. In this study, we measured A. quadriimpressum adults' electrophysiological and behavioral responses to 13 compounds, including 6 plant volatiles (linalool, α-pinene, methyl salicylate, indole, di-n-octyl phthalate, dimethyl naphthalene), 4… 
Electrophysiological and laboratory behavioral responses of a leaf beetle pest of elm, Ambrostoma quadriimpressum, to selected plant volatiles and essential oils
Electantennogram, Y‐tube olfactometer, and wind tunnel bioassays were conducted to test the electrophysiological and behavioral response of A. quadriimpressum and provide a basis for the development of a ‘push‐pull’ strategy to manage this elm pest.
Chemical Composition and Bioactivity of the Essential Oil from Artemisia lavandulaefolia (Asteraceae) on Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae)
Artemisia lavandulaefolia oil exhibited fumigant toxicity against P. xylostella adults with an LC50 of 0.113 mg per L after 12 h and also provided 80 to 100% repellency at a 1% v/v concentration.
Comparison of Phenylacetates with Benzoates and Phenylpropanoates as Antifeedants for the Pine Weevil, Hylobius abietis.
An extensive investigation of antifeedant effects of benzoates and phenylpropanoids for the pine weevil, Hylobius abietis, concludes; combinations of compounds from the three classes were tested in binary and ternary mixtures.
Morphology and Distribution of the Antennal Sensillia of the Leaf Beetle, Ambrostoma quadriimpressum (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae)
ABSTRACT The leaf beetle, Ambrostoma quadriimpressum Motschulsky (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) is the predominant pest of elms (Rosales: Ulmaceae) in China, Russia, and elsewhere in northesatern Asia,
Two Odorant-Binding Proteins of the Dark Black Chafer (Holotrichia parallela) Display Preferential Binding to Biologically Active Host Plant Volatiles
Results showed that HparOBP20 and 49 are involved in odor recognition; these proteins bind attractive plant volatiles strongly and can therefore be employed to develop environmentally friendly DBC management strategies; and the green-leaf volatile (Z)-3-hexenyl acetate may represent a useful supplement to the known sex pheromone for DBC attraction.
Evaluation of Lippia citriodora essential oil nanoformulation against the lepidopteran pest Phthorimaea operculella Zeller (Gelechiidae)
Abstract A new delivery system was applied to control P. operculella based on interpolation of Lippia citriodora essential oil into PVA-nanofiber using electrospinning technique. Based on GC-MS
Selectivity and ligand-based molecular modeling of an odorant-binding protein from the leaf beetle Ambrostoma quadriimpressum (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in relation to habitat-related volatiles
This study provides a new reliable tool for future large-scale compound screenings and revealed several functional chemicals that might aid the development of a better pest management approach for A. quadriimpressum.


Electroantennogram responses ofHyles lineata (Sphingidae: Lepidoptera) to volatile compounds fromClarkia breweri (Onagraceae) and other moth-pollinated flowers
H. lineata's olfactory sensitivity to diverse volatile compounds across a range of doses/concentrations suggests that a broad array of volatiles could function as floral attractants for foraging hawkmoths.
Behaviorally Active Green Leaf Volatiles for Monitoring the Leaf Beetle, Diorhabda elongata, a Biocontrol Agent of Saltcedar, Tamarix spp.
The combination of the pheromone and the green leaf odor blend could be a useful attractant in detecting the presence of the biocontrol agent, D. elongata, in stands of saltcedar newly colonized by the beetle.
Electroantennographic and behavioural responses of scarab beetles to Ricinus communis leaf volatiles
Holotrichia oblita,H. parallela and Anomala corpulenta are important pests in the dry land areas of North China,which feed roots or stems of plants in larvae stage and leaves of variety of plants in
Toxicity and antifeedant activity of essential oils from three aromatic plants grown in Colombia against Euprosterna elaeasa and Acharia fusca (Lepidoptera: Limacodidae)
Cymbopogon martinii oil was the most active against both pest insect species, although all tested EOs were better than the synthetic repellent IR3535 on both insects.
Development of semiochemical attractants for monitoring bean seed beetle, Bruchus rufimanus.
The prototype trapping system developed could be used as a monitoring tool to determine infestation levels of B. rufimanus in bean fields and blends of semiochemicals identified were shown to be attractive in cone traps under field conditions.
Attraction of Lygus rugulipennis and Adelphocoris lineolatus to synthetic floral odour compounds in field experiments in Hungary
By attracting both sexes of both species, these new attractants may prove to be useful and provide the basis for further development of new lures for agricultural use.
