Description 

Author(s) Annie Deutsch, Christelle Guédot

Many insects have a highly developed sense of smell, especially those insects that fly at night and those that must locate mates or food sources from long distances. Insects communicate through the sense of smell using chemical signals called semiochemicals, and these modes of communication can be harnessed to manage insect pests.


This fact sheet explains the types of semiochemicals and the applications of synthetic semiochemicals in pest management, including pest monitoring, mass trapping, attract and kill, mating disruption, antifeedants, repellants, and push–pull strategies (8 pages; 2017).
