Abstract

Either (E)- or (Z)-11-tetradecenal, the two pheromone components, or one analogue, 9-(cyclopent-2-en-1-yl)-nonanal, effectively reduced mating of spruce budworm moths, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), in the laboratory. The results suggest that different behavioural and physiological processes may be occurring in pheromonal attraction and close range mating prevention in the spruce budworm.

Résumé

Les 2 composantes de la phéromone, soit le (E)- et le (Z)-11-tétradécénal, de même qu’un analogue, le 9-(cyclopent-2-en-1-yle)-nonanal, ont effectivement réduit l’accouplement des papillons de la tordeuse des bourgeons de l’épinette, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), en laboratoire. Ces résultats indiquent que les processus comportementaux et physiologiques impliqués différeraient entre la réponse d’attraction à distance et la perturbation de l’accouplement à proximité.
