Abstract:Mating of caged adults of Choristoneura fumiferana (Clemens) was reduced 60–94% when the surrounding air was permeated with their sex pheromone. The reduction in mating was observed at moderate and at very high moth densities. It is possible that a certain threshold concentration is needed, below which mating reduction does not occur and above which little increase in reduction occurs.
