Only two components of the four-component sex lure (Zll-16:aldehyde, Zll-16:acetate, Zll-16:alcohol, and Z9-14:alcohol)for Plutella xylostella were effective in disrupting orientation of male moths to baited traps in small field plots. Both Zll-16:aldehyde and Zll-16:acetate effected disruption but were more effective when combined. The lure components Zll-16:alcohol and Z9-14:alcohol together gave no significant reduction in number of P. xylostella captured when tested alone; nor was the disruptive power of Zll-16: acetate or Zll-16:aldehyde + Zll-16:acetate increased when the two alcohols were added.
