Pheromones of non-lepidopteran insects associated with agricultural plants.

Abstract

The history and current progress in the elucidation of the biology and chemistry of pheromones from non-lepidopteran agricultural pests and beneficial insects is reviewed. The pheromones and kairomones of hosts and prey of beneficial insects are also included. Insects important in agriculture, horticulture, forestry and stored products are covered. Chapters are dedicated to the following insects: fruit flies (Tephritidae), gall midges (Cecidomyiidae), scarab beetles (Scarabaeidae), sap beetles (Carpophilus spp.), weevils (Curculionidae), forest beetles (Coleoptera), stored-product beetles (Coleoptera), sawflies and seed wasps (Hymenoptera), aphids (Aphidoidea), scale insects (Coccoidea), phytophagous bugs (Heteroptera), grasshoppers and locusts (Acrididae), termites (Isoptera), beneficial predators, parasitoids and parasitoid hosts and bees (Apidae).
