    TOWARDS OPTIMIZATION OF SEX-ATTRACTANT PHEROMONE USE FOR DISRUPTION OF TORTRICID MOTH PESTS IN TREE FRUIT By Michael David Reinke As applied to insects, mating disruption is the practice of deploying synthetic sex attractant pheromones into an environment so as to interfere with normal mate finding.

This comprehensive and detailed handbook is a guide to the literature published before on pheromones and sex attractants that affect aggregation for mating and/or elicit sexual behaviour in insects, mites and ticks, many of which are agricultural, forest, or public health pests. The scope of the book has been restricted to those chemicals with 'sex pheromonal' or 'mating' by: Abstract.

As the field of pheromone research evolved, and it became clear that pheromones possessed great potential as components of pest management strategies, it became necessary (a) to define precisely the pheromonal blend emitted by the insect, (b) to determine the rates of production and release of the blends by the insect, and (c) to develop controlled release systems for use in Cited by: Integrated Pest Management - using a combination of pest control methods to address the problem in order to reduce the need for synthetic chemicals natural chemical control use of natural chemicals, e.g.

Insects and other arthropods are attracted to animal and plant hosts through chemicals either on contact or in the air (see section, “Food-baited jars” and “Baiting for moths and beetles”). Their keen ability to detect odors also allows them to detect other insects of the same or even unrelated species.

The tea tortrix moth, Homona magnanima, and the smaller tea tortrix moth, Adoxophyes sp., the key pests of the tea plant, occur together 4 to 5 times a year. Female sex pheromones of these species are a four-component system for Adoxophyes (ZAc, ZAc, EAc, 10MeAc) and a three-component system for Homona (ZAc, ZAc, Ac).).

Insect hormones, also known as JH (juvenile hormones) are considered fro insect control because they upset the development of the insect. Females come out sterile, certain insects do not proceed to their next stage of development, and some insects wind up being much smaller.

Pheromones are chemicals that are produced by an insect in order to attract a mate. It's is a promising method of insect control because people can lure in a specific.

For insect attractants to be broadcast into the environment for direct control, the attractants (regulated as pesticides) must be evaluated and approved by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

The sex attractant of the oriental fruit moth has been approved for such use in plastic "ropes" to be tied onto the limbs of fruit trees.

Chemical attractants and repellents produced by plants and by insects themselves may be the answer to the public's demand for more potent insect-control agents and the demand of health agencies for less toxic residues.

The most active attractants, which may be effective in infinitesimal concentration at a distance of ¼ mile or more, are the sex attractants; they are highly specific and.

This book contains the proceedings of the "First International Symposium on Insect Pheromones," which was held at Wageningen, The Netherlands, from March 6 to Ma Eighty participants from 17 countries attended the symposium, which turned out to be a unique forum for the exchange of the latest worldwide findings on insect pheromones, an opportunity to discuss and debate unsettled.

The rotenoids: deguelin, rotenone, sarcolobine, tephrosin, and α-toxicarol, thus chemotype 1 are required for pest control efficacy while chemotype 2 is non-pesticidal (Belmain et al., ).

Pheromones and other insect attractants. Insects use a variety of chemical odors called semiochemicals to communicate within and between species (Section ).Pheromones are particularly important chemicals used for signaling between members of the same species — these are often mixtures of two, three, or more components, which, when released by one individual, elicit a specific.

Sex pheromones that stimulate orientation responses of one sex to the other and serve to bring males and females together for initiation of courtship and mating are referred to here as sex attractants or sex attractant pheromones.

The principal benefits will be improved insect control. One thrust of our work is to develop new monitoring and interpretative tools that help pest managers decide whether or not to apply a pesticide. A second major goal is to develop mating disruptants, that is formulated synthetic copies of sex pheromones that can be applied to crops as a means of insect pest birth control.

SEX PHEROMONES Both male and female of some insects produce sex attractants. So powerful are they that the g a female insect carries can attract males from miles away.

Humans can often smell these pheromones, but only in much higher concentrations. Sex. Although insect endocrinology is one of the oldest and most active branches of insect physiology, its classic general texts are long out of date, while its abundant primary literature provides little biological context in which to make sense of the discipline as a whole.

The Insects is about how insects function as animals; it brings together basic anatomy and physiology and relates this to behavior. It emphasizes the roles of different functional systems in the context of the whole organism, using studies of many different species as illustrations.

Insect repellants must be effective, safe, and pleasant to apply in children and adults and during pregnancy without damaging skin or clothing.

It may for the same individual. With the commercial availability of insect sex pheromones for several agricultural pests in the 's, scientists and entrepreneurs turned their attention to mating disruption as a "biorational" approach to insect control.

In theory, mating disruption may be accomplished in two. Scanning electron microscopy and single unit recordings of male Trichoplusia ni antennae reveal at least two classes of pheromone-sensitive sensilla trichodea.

The longer sensillum contains two receptor neurons each with small amounts of spontaneous activity. One neuron responds to large (microgram) doses of (Z)- 7-dodecenyl acetate, a component of the female sex pheromone.

Pheromones are produced by specialized glands in insects of one sex and elicit a behavioral response in the opposite sex. In most cases, the producing sex does not release the pheromone continuously throughout its adult life.

Nor does the responding sex typically display a constant degree of responsiveness to the pheromone.About this book. Dr. Allen Carson Cohen's new edition of Insect Diets: Science and Technology continues to provide a current, integrated review of the field of insect diets.

It reaffirms and expands upon the belief that the science of diet development and the technology of diet application in rearing programs require formal foundations and guidelines.

Plant-based repellents have been used for generations in traditional practice as a personal protection measure against host-seeking mosquitoes.

Knowledge on traditional repellent plants obtained through ethnobotanical studies is a valuable resource for the development of new natural products.
