Abstract

Dispensers of the semiochemicals (E)-Beta-farnesene and Phacelia tanacetifolia flower extract when placed within a crop of winter wheat significantly increased the activity of carabid beetles as measured by pitfall trap catches, increased aphid parasitism, and reduced aphid numbers on plants compared to untreated areas of the crop. The reasons for this and the potential use of these semiochemicals in integrated pest management are discussed.
