Abstract

Calling and mating behaviors of the fruit-feeder type yellow peach moth, Dichocrocis punctiferalis Guenee were observed. Two simple types of bioassay in laboratory were developed to isolate and identify the sex pheromone. The preliminary isolation of the sex pheromone was also made with CH2Cl2 extraction of the female abdominal tips and by Florisil column chromatography.
