Abstract:Aerial distribution of disparlure, the racemic form of the sex attractant of the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar (L.), was investigated by an air sampling technique. Temperature, humidity, and disparlure concentrations at 0.3. 8.0, and 16.9m above ground were measured intermittently for 59 days after a microencapsulated formulation had been applied by air over a forest canopy. Aerial concentration of disparlure decreased with increasing height above the ground.
