APPLICATION

Application Of Insect Pheromones In Pest Management

Practical applications of pheromones in pest management can be used in the following ways:

  • Trapping for detelures2ction by monitoring and surveying.
  • Monitoring control efficacy and insecticide resistance, using pheromones as attractants.
  • Luring insects to areas treated with insecticide or poison stations.
  • Luring insects to areas treated with pathogens, which are then spread by the infected individuals to the rest of the population.
  • Mass trapping for population suppression.
  • Disrupting communication within the insect population by saturating the area with pheromones. Sex pheromones disrupt mating, resulting in population decline.
  • Using “Attract and Kill”, a UV resistant grease like matrix containing the specific insect’s pheromone together with an insecticide; males are attracted to the droplet, try to mate with it and are killed on contact.
  • Attract & sterilize.
