Three EAG-active components were detected in the GC-EAD analyses of the hexane extracts of abdominal tips from virgin females of Acrolepiopsis nagaimo Yasuda (Lepidoptera: Acrolepiidae). These components were identified as (Z)-11-hexadecenyl acetate (Z11-16:Ac), (Z)-11-hexadecenal (Z11-16:Ald) and (Z)-11-hexadecen-1-ol (Z11-16:OH) at 1.8, 0.6, and 0.2 ng/female, respectively, by subsequent GC-MS analyses and chemical derivatization. In a field test conducted at Daiei-cho, Tottori in 1998, more… Expand

Sex pheromone of Acrolepiopsis nagaimo Yasuda (Lepidoptera: Acrolepiidae), a predominant leafminer on Chinese yam in Tottori Prefecture: field evaluation and activity of the third component
In field tests conducted in Chinese yam fields in Tottori Prefecture of Japan in 1998, maximum catches of Acrolepiopsis nagaimo males were obtained when 100 μg of a binary blend of (Z)-11-hexadecenyl acetate (Z11-16:Ac) and (Z-12:Ald) was baited in the traps, and the third compound was confirmed as a sex pheromone component.

Female sex pheromone of a Japanese population of allium leafminer, Acrolepiopsis sapporensis (Lepidoptera: Acrolepiidae)
Three monoenyl compounds were detected in GC/MS analysis of a hexane extract of pheromone glands from virgin female Acrolepiopsis sapporensis, and blends of the three components were evidenced to attract male moths in a Welsh onion field. Expand
Identification and field testing of sex pheromone components of a Korean population of the allium leafminer, Acrolepiopsis sapporensis

Identification of chemical compounds of the pheromone in different ages of female adults of the clearwing moth, Paranthrene diaphana Dalla Torre & Strand
It seems that female sex pheromone is a combination of these 12 compounds, introduced while seven combinations have also been produced and released at all ages of insect which include: Pentadecane, HeptadeCane, Dodecane, Tetrade cane, Hexadecanes, Eicosane and Tridecane. Expand
Insect pests and their management in yam production and storage: a world review
Post-harvest losses in storage of yam can be reduced, partly, by using biocontrol agents for mealybugs and scales, and alternative strategies for the management of insect pests of tubers in storage are discussed. Expand


Improved sex attractant for the leek moth, Acrolepiopsis assectella Zell. (Lep., Acrolepiidae)
Sex attractant traps containing a blend of (Z)‐11‐hexadecenal (Z11‐16:Ald) and (Z)'s in a 10:1 ratio yielded the highest captures of male Acrolepiopsis assectella Zeller moths at Wageningen. Expand
Multi-component Sex Attractants in Systematic Field Tests of Male Lepidoptera
Male moths of 52 species were specifically attracted to two- or three-component lures, indicating the usefulness of systematic field tests using multi- component lures of selected synthetic chemicals. Expand
