Business overview

Insects of the same species can communicate with one another by releasing small quantities of chemical substances from their bodies into the air. These distinct 'scents', which are called pheromones, will attract others to the source of that attraction. Since the chemical composition of the pheromones differs from species to species, the attraction of an insect's pheromone is specific to that species alone. Over the years, researchers have been able to chemically identify many of these individual pheromones and in a number of cases have also been able to synthesize them. As a result, it is now possible to communicate with certain insects by using these synthesized pheromones, enabling us to attract them, or disrupt them from their normal behaviour. The key component of Integrated Pest Management for insect pests, is to have a greater knowledge of their behaviour Only by being aware of when and where insects are present, and at what stage of their life cycle they are at, can timely decisions be made on the need for any control treatment. Pheromone monitoring provides this important tool. Another use of pheromones is to create insect mating disruption. This is a control method which is proving itself to be a successful pest management tool in many different crops around the world and can lead to significant pesticide reduction.. Every year there are more reports of different insects showing insecticide resistance and many of the commonly used insecticides are now becoming less effective as a means of control. As a result, the need to find alternative control methods is now critical. Besides seeing improved cultural and management techniques, we can also expect to see new biological tools being developed for insect control and these are likely to include pheromones, kairomones, oviposition stimulants, phagostimulants, repellants and attractants - many of which will be applied in conjunction with one another. These biological methods for pest management are totally different in their action from present pesticide-based controls and will require a better understanding of insect behaviour by those who apply them. However, we can be sure that these new techniques will play an increasing role in pest management in agriculture, forestry and industry in the future.
