Disparlure (6) is the sex pheromone of the female gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.
Pure enantiomers must be manufactured for the practical use of disparlure (6, the gypsy moth pheromone) and japonilure (the Japanese beetle pheromone) in pest management.
1976) Stereoselective synthesis of optically active disparlure, the pheromone of the gypsy moth (Porthetria dispar L.
1979) Stereoselective synthesis of the both enantiomers of disparlure, the pheromone of the gypsy moth.
Indiana Department of Natural Resources and USDA Forest Service applied pheromone flakes, disparlure, to a very low-level gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar) population in south-central Indiana in June 2008 to eradicate the infestation.
Mating disruption using the pheromone disparlure is considered specific to gypsy moth and is not known to cause impacts on non-target organism populations, water quality, microclimate, or soil productivity and fertility (USDA 2008, Vol.
Rate of release of disparlure
from laminated plastic dispensers.
Held to leaves, branches, and trunks by means of gluelike sticker, the dispensers' job would be to saturate the air with Disparlure
, a commercially produced pheromone that mimics the natural chemical sex attractant of female moths.
disrupts mating activity in small, low-level gypsy populations.
Disparlure baits about 300,000 traps used in federal and state programs.
Still in an experimental stage, this kind of disparlure is used by FS and APHIS to permeate an entire forest.
The alternative disparlure is dispensed from airplanes by special hoppers that broadcast small chips of pheromone-impregnated plastic laminate.
