Abstract

The term “pheromones,” in general, refers to chemical substances, which when produced and released to the outside by an individual cause specific behavioral or physiological responses in other individuals of the same species. Ever since the sex pheromone of the silkmoth, Bombyx mori, was reported as the first chemically identified pheromone nearly 30 years ago (Butenandt et al. 1959), considerable research has been conducted on pheromones in insect species.
