Abstract:

Various synthetic analogs of the trail-following pheromone were tested against several subterranean and dry- and damp-wood termites. The synthetic pheromones were found to be generally active against subterranean termites, both under laboratory and semi-field conditions. One of the most active compounds, 4-phenyl-cis-3-butanol, can be synthesized easily. Author
