Abstract

A bstract: Sex pheromone activity of synthetic periplanone-A (PA) and its epimer (EPA) was bioassayed in six species of genera Periplaneta and Blatta. The activity of PA was about one thousandth that of periplanone-B (PB) in males of P. americana, and that of EPA was a further one thousandth lower than that of PA. PA, EPA and mixtures of PA and PB showed low pheromone activity in males of P. joponica, P. brunnea, P. australasiae and B. orientalis.
