This volume brings together an international group of experts who describe all pest-control behavior modifying chemicals (BMCs) that involve the use of pheromones (semiochemicals). Contributors review the history of pheromone research and describe the formulation, production, and application of pheromones. They then evaluate the effectiveness of pheromones and discuss their further commercialization in pest control. Also covered are testing techniques and the influence of insect physiological studies on chemical formulation.
