Abstract:
The daily emergence patterns of Matsucoccus josephi adults and third-instar male larvae raised on artificially infested saplings of Pinus halepensis were determined. A single peak of emergence was found for adult males between 0300 and 0500 hr. Adult females emerged throughout the day, with maximum emergence between 0500 and 0700 hr. Two daily emergence periods were observed in third-instar male larvae, one between 0300 and 0900 hr and the other between 1700 and 2100 hr. Airborne pheromone emitted by adult virgin females was collected using a flow system. No significant differences were recorded in the attraction of the male to crude pheromone collected at different times of day. A single female, virgin or half an hour after mating, was sufficient to attract the males in an olfactometer system. From minor differences in pheromone release throughout the day, and from the lesser degree of attraction by females half an hour after mating, it is assumed that there is no mechanism controlling the daily release of the female sex pheromone. Reduction of pheromone emission after mating is suggested. © 1990 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
