Targeting diamondback moth in greenhouses by attracting specific native parasitoids with herbivory-induced plant volatiles

Junji Takabayashi
We investigated whether recruitment of specific parasitoids using a specific blend of synthetic herbivory-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) could be a novel method of pest control in greenhouses. In the Miyama rural area in Kyoto, Japan,diamondback moth (DBM) (Plutella xylostella) larvae are an important pest of cruciferous crops in greenhouses, and Cotesia vestalis, a larval parasitoid of DBM, are found in the surrounding areas. Dispensers of HIPVs that attracted C. vestalis and honey feeders were set...
