Abstract

Infochemicals are important in modulating a large number of both intra- and interspecific interactions in nature and in this paper we examine examples of their use by insects in the location of mates, food and suitable oviposition sites. Furthermore, we consider how an understanding of chemical ecology can be used to develop more efficient and ecologically acceptable pest management programs.
