About Insect Pheromones

Pheromones act as chemical messages that affect the behavior of an individual or group of individuals within the same species and can be used as a method of communication between members of the same or the opposite sex. Insect pheromones are essential components of monitoring and management tools targeting pests of agricultural crops. Mating disruption, mass trapping, “attract-and-kill”, and “push-pull” are some of the direct pest control strategies that have utilized the use of pheromones for over three decades.
