Auto-disorientation method in combination with blocking agents of pheromone perception in male antennae of Agriotes tauricus Heyd.


Abstract: In this study, 16 biologically active substances were evaluated as blocking agents of sex pheromone perception by the mail click beetle (Agriotes tauricus Heyd.). Diallyl maleate blocked pheromone perception of 82% of the beetles tested. Beetle captures were reduced in field trials by 87% in plots treated with nine auto-disorientation devices baited with diallyl maleate and sex pheromone.
