Extract

The sex pheromone of bertha armyworm, Mamestra configurata (Walker), was reported to be (Z)-11-hexadecenyl acetate (Z11-16:Ac) and an unidentified tetradecenyl acetate. Electroantennogram responses of male antennae to synthetic isomeric tetradecenyl acetates and attractancy tests under field conditions showed that the highest number of males were captured with a blend of Z9-14:Ac: Z11-16:Ac in a ratio of 1:19 (Underhill et al. 1977). This blend has been useful for monitoring the relative abundances of bertha armyworm; however, in 162 monitor traps in southern Alberta from 1979 to 1982, the catches consisted of 18.4% Agroperina cogitata (Sm)
