Abstract:Several compounds were tested for disruption of sex pheromone communication in Amyelois transitella (Walker). Catches of males in female-baited traps were significantly reduced by in-trap treatments with (Z)-9- and (Z)-11-tetradecen-1-ol formate and isomers of 9, 11-tetradecadien-1-ol formate. Disruption by air permeation with (Z,Z)-9,11,tetradecadien-1-ol formate was better with a plastic laminate formulation than hollow fibers or polyvinyl-chloride rods but was still inferior to treatments with the navel orangeworm pheromone (Z,Z)-11, 13-hexadecadienal.
