Pheromones are chemical substance which are used to attract the insects of same species which are released by insect. These pheromones are artificially made by the using specific chemicals which have same fragrance or odor like natural chemical to attract insect to collect in traps or cages. Odor dispersion depends upon the intensity of source, air temperature and wind speed, dispersion route and absorption by insects distance. Hanging traps distance and ground traps distance also impact on dispersion of odor.
Artificial pheromones was used to traps insects in traps by using “Gyptol”. This is infrared spectrum of the purified attractant (termed “gyptol”) indicated the presence of a primary hydroxy group, a secondary acetoxyl group, and double bond. This compound is the natural attractant was confirmed by the synthesis of material with activity equivalent to that of the natural attractant. Active space dependency on the behavior threshold, distance from source and dispersion of odor, all these factors are cross ponding to each other.
