Optimal Formulations with Phantolid for Extending the Duration of Effectiveness of Trimedlure and Methyl (E)-6-Nonenoate as Attractants to Male Mediterranean Fruit Flies
In 1976 we reported1 that certain perfume fixatives controlled the release of trimedlure,2 an attractant of male Mediterranean fruit flies, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann), and thereby enhanced the duration of effectiveness of this lure. The perfume fixatives were evaluated in an olfactometer stocked with laboratory massreared flies, and included tonalid, musk R-1, ambrettozone, galaxolide, astrotone, hibiscolide, phantolid, and musk BRB.
