Calling Behavior and Attractive Response of Cardamom Shoot and Capsule Borer Conogethes punctiferalis Guenee (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) to the Female Crude Extract and Synthetic Blend
D. Rajabaskar and A. Regupathy

Abstract:
The calling behavior and attractiveness of Conogethes punctiferalis to female crude extract and synthetic blend were investigated. The dose, age, sex of the C. punctiferalis, ratio of the compounds and airflow had significant influence over attraction of male shoot and capsule borer in cardamom. The calling of females started 03.45 h after start of scotophase and peak calling was observed 3 h prior to end of scotophase and attraction of male moths to synthetic blend (E-10-hexadecenal and Z-10-hexadecenal) was maximum at 90:10 and followed by 80:20 ratio.
