Pheromones Traps in Insect Pests Management

Among the different types of pheromones, sex pheromones are gained importance in the pest management programme. Pheromones have the ability to involve in the metamorphosis, behavioural changes, and sexual maturation. These natural properties of the pheromones have attracted the attention of many Entomologists those who involved in the pest management service to exploit the pheromones in insect pest control. Pheromone chemistry ranges from the blends of aliphatic alcohols, aldehydes, esters and epoxides exploited by the lepidopteran insects to alkenoic acids and aldehydes, branched alkanes, esters, monoterpines alcohols, and aldehydes to a furanone employed by beetles.
