References: Daterman, G. E. Synthetic sex pheromone for detection survey of European pine shoot moth. Res. . Sex pheromones are ideal compounds for insect control technologies because of their specificity and minimal impact on the ecosystem. Synthetic sex pheromones are used for population monitoring, mating disruption, and mass trapping of a wide variety of pest species, particularly members of Lepidoptera [4,5,6].Although the sex pheromones of some tea pests have been identified, they have Author: Zongxiu Luo, Fida Hussain Magsi, Zhaoqun Li, Xiaoming Cai, Lei Bian, Yan Liu, Zhaojun Xin, Chunli Xi.

The sex pheromone of the European pine shoot moth, Rhyacionia buoliana, has been isolated and, using chemical methods, its structure shown to be (E)dodecenyl acetate.

In a more recent report from Florida (McLaughlin et al., ) the authors suggest that a rope formation of a mixture of (Z)hexadecenal and (Z)hexadecenyl acetate, two components of the sex pheromone, may provide some level of control in larger commercial fields. Herein we report the results of field. The major component of the active fraction from the Thaumetopoea pityocampa (Denis and Schiff.) virgin female extract has been identified as (Z)hexadecenynyl acetate on the basis of spectroscopic and microchemical reactions data. This is the first report of an acetylenic structure found in the insect pheromone field.

The Canadian Entomologist - () Synthetic sex pheromones released in a loblolly pine, Pinus tuedu L. (Pinaceae), seed orchard interfered with the ability of male coneworm moths. Synthetic sex attractants were used to trap Rhyacionia pine tip moths throughout the western United States in spring and early summer and Some species were shown to have much wider distributions than previously known. Among species responding to (E)dodecenyl acetate, was collected over most of the area, with new records for Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, . regated by sex, and the moths allowed to emerge on a 10 light-dark pho- toperiod regime. The sex pheromone glands of 2- to day-old females were excised into ca. 50 pl of CS2 in a micro-test-tube during the normal period of female pheromone emission in the fourth through sixth hours of scotophase. The behavior of male western spruce budworm moths,Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman, was observed in a flight tunnel in response to virgin females and synthetic sex pheromone components, alone and in blends. Pheromone blends were also compared in the field using sticky trap bioassays.
