PISTACHIO VOLATILES TO ATTRACT FEMALE NAVEL ORANGEWORM (AMYELOIS TRANSITELLA)

Start date

End date
2005
Objective
Test putative attractants for female navel orangeworm (NOW) in field and laboratory assays. The published attractants for female NOW provide egg capture at low-to-moderate rates and with great variability. It is expected that changes in volatile profiles as nuts mature from uninfestable to infestable will be strong indicators of chemicals used by female NOW to locate potential hosts. Chemical analyses plus bioassays of these compounds is expected to lead to better female NOW attractants
