• traps
  • Our results represent the first example of a ''generic'' sex pheromone used by multiple species in the subfamily Lepturinae, and demonstrate that pheromone-baited traps may be a sensitive and efficient method of monitoring the threatened species Desmocerus californicus dimorphus, commonly known as the valley elderberry longhorn beetle. (oregonstate.edu)
  • The fact that pheromone traps are highly species-specific can also be an advantage, and they tend to be inexpensive and easy to implement. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some difficulties surrounding pheromone traps include sensitivity to bad weather, their ability to attract pests from neighboring areas, and the fact that they generally only attract adults although it is the juveniles in many species that are pests. (wikipedia.org)
  • pest
  • Some pheromone-based pest control methods have been successful, usually those designed to protect enclosed areas such as households or storage facilities. (wikipedia.org)
  • funnel
  • A pheromone-impregnated lure, as the red rubber septa in the picture, is encased in a conventional trap such as a bottle trap, Delta trap, water-pan trap, or funnel trap. (wikipedia.org)
  • male
  • Male beetles were not attracted to frontalin, a principal attractant of the closely related Douglas-fir beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae Hopkins. (usda.gov)
  • Orchids in the genus Paracaleana are pollinated by male thynnid wasps which are attracted to the flower by pheromones. (wikipedia.org)
  • detection
  • These senses range from smell (olfaction), taste (gustation), hearing (mechanoreception), and sight (vision) to pheromone detection, pain detection (nociception), electroreception and magnetoreception. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • Ruling out alarm pheromone and compounds that were not found in the whole-body extracts of the bugs, four compounds remained to be tested as possible attractants. (springer.com)
  • However, they may be distinguished based on DNA sequencing, pheromones, or geographic origin as C. chalcites is found in the Palearctic and C. eriosoma in the tropical and subtropical regions of eastern Asia and the Pacific islands as well as in Australia and New Zealand. (wikipedia.org)
