Several recent studies have identified that the combination of acetic acid with either phenylacetonitrile or 2-phenylethanol produced effective bisexual lures for a number of tortricid pests, including Pandemis heparana (Denis and Schiffermuller) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) in Sweden, P.
For example, moth catches in traps baited with acetic acid and phenylacetonitrile were similar to traps baited with sex pheromone in apple orchards treated with sex pheromone dispensers for disruption of S.
For example, traps baited with leafroller sex pheromone caught significantly fewer males when lures loaded with either 2-phenylethanol or phenylacetonitrile alone (C.
Sachet lures loaded with 100 mg phenylacetonitrile (> 99% purity, Sigma Aldrich, St.
The 2012 study included 6 lure treatments: blank, phenylacetonitrile alone, pear ester plus phenylacetonitrile, pear ester plus acetic acid, phenylacetonitrile plus acetic acid, and phenylacetonitrile plus pear ester plus acetic acid.
pomonella in traps baited with or without phenylacetonitrile added to the sex pheromone-pear ester combinational lure plus the acetic acid cup lure.
Similarly, the weight loss of sachet lures loaded with phenylacetonitrile (N = 5) was recorded from 28 Aug to 19 Sep 2013.

acridum) a fungal disease of locusts and grasshoppers (Lomer & Langewald 2001, Hunter 2005), and on a pheromone, phenylacetonitrile (PAN), that affects gregarization behavior (Hassanali etal.
It says that spraying the pheromone phenylacetonitrile, or PAN, in tiny quantities of 10 millilitres per hectare can stop marauding armies of hoppers that march in bands five kilometers-wide given the right conditions--eating their own body-weight in vegetation daily.
