Abstract

The present situation and future prospects for the use of semiochemicals for insect control is reviewed, with particular reference to the work being carried out at IACR-Rothamsted. The techniques used to identify pheromones and other semiochemicals, and the types of compound found in various insect classes, are described. The effects of such compounds on pests, their predators and other members of the ecosystem are considered in relation to the development of control strategies such as 'push-pull' or stimulo-deterrent diversionary strategies (SDDS).
