Species diversity of different insect families trapped under beer-based volatile fermentation
Fermentation can help for the attraction of different families of insects of various crops and is safe biochemical constituents and did not spread any toxic chemicals to the environment.


Accumulation of phenylpropanoids in the rectal glands of males of the Oriental fruit fly,Dacus dorsalis
Two phenylpropanoid compounds, 2-allyl-4,5-dimethoxyphenol(II) and coniferyl alcohol(III), were characterized from body tissue of wild males of the Oriental fruit fly, Dacus dorsalis, when laboratory-reared males were fed with methyl eugenol.
A new species of pest fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae: Dacinae) from Sri Lanka and Africa
A new species of Dacinae, Bactrocera (Bactrocera) invadens sp.n., from Sri Lanka and Africa, is described and illustrated. This is a pest species that has recently been introduced into eastern Africa
Isolation and identification of the sex pheromone of the mediterranean fruit fly, Ceratitis capitata(Wied)
The volatile compounds emitted by sexually mature male mediterranean fruit flies (Ceratitis capitata) have been identified and the key component involved in the sexual attraction of virgin female
Identification and synthesis of the major sex pheromone of the olive fly (Dacus oleae)
The major component of the sex pheromone of the olive fly has been shown to be 1,7-dioxaspiro[5.5] undecane (1) and its structure has been confirmed by unambiguous synthesis; field studies have

The behavioral responses of virgin female Mexican fruit flies elicited by components and combinations of the components of male-produced pheromone were measured in a laboratory wind-tunnel bioassay and support a model of pherOMone-component function in which components act as a unit to stimulate all behaviors of the phersomone-mediated behavioral repertoire.
Courtship Behavior and Evidence for a Sex Attractant in the Male Caribbean Fruit Fly, Anastrepha suspensa
Male Anastrepha suspensa (Loew) (Diptera: Tephritidae) release one or more volatile pheromones that attract females in laboratory assays, probably while distending the pleural region of abdominal segments 3, 4, and 5, and an anal pouch.
Volatile substances from male Anastrepha fraterculus wied. (Diptera: Tephritidae): identification and behavioural activity
Salivary glands from virgin calling male A. fraterculus showed behavioural activity when bioassayed with virgin mature female flies, but immature females were not attracted.
Methyl Eugenol: Its Occurrence, Distribution, and Role in Nature, Especially in Relation to Insect Behavior and Pollination
This review discusses the occurrence and distribution of methyl eugenol in different plant species from 80 families spanning many plant orders, as well as various roles this chemical plays in nature, especially in the interactions between tephritid fruit flies and plants.
Pharmacophagy of Methyl Eugenol by Males Enhances Sexual Selection of Bactrocera carambolae
After pharmacophagy of methyl eugenol (ME), males of Bactrocera carambolae produced (E)-coniferyl alcohol along with its endogenously synthesized pheromonal compounds, which revealed that the ME-deprived males were not only attracted to the Me-fed males, but also appeared to feed on their anal secretions.
