- ... Bagrada hilaris (Burmeister) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) is a serious pest that attacks both germinating and seedling stages of a variety of cruciferous crops grown in the Central Coast of California.

- ... A mixture of four volatile compounds, (Z)-3-hexenyl acetate, α-pinene, sabinene and n-heptanal, emitted from cabbage plants infested by diamondback moth [DBM; Plutella xylostella (L.)] larvae attracts Cotesia vestalis (Haliday), a major parasitoid of DBM larvae. The volatiles may affect other organisms, such as DBM conspecifics, other herbivores and carnivores. Here, we studied whether the volatil ...
