Insect Pheromones and Intermediates

Advanced Intermediates for Insect Pheromones/Semiochemicals

Many insect behaviors rely on the sense of smell. Chemical odors, termed semiochemicals, are especially important in both interspecific and intraspecific communication. The latter is particularly highly developed in insects and involves the use of chemicals called pheromones.

The goals of using semiochemicals/pheromones in pest control are:
» To monitor pest populations to determine if control is warranted.
» To alter the behavior of the pest or its enemies to the detriment of the pest eg. mating disruption.

The advantages of using semiochemicals/pheromones are:
» They have adverse effects only on target pests.
» They are relatively nontoxic and required in low amounts.
» They are nonpersistent and environmentally safe.
» They appear difficult for insects to develop resistance against.
