    Carvone and less volatile analogues as repellent and deterrent antifeedants against the pine weevil, Hylobius abietis2004In: Journal of applied entomology, ISSN 0931-2048, E-ISSN 1439-0418, Vol. 128, no 9-10, p. 610-619Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The monoterpenoid carvone (1) has been shown to have strong antifeedant effects on Hylobius spp. However, because of the high volatility of carvone, long-time protection of conifer seedlings in the field using this compound has not been possible. We demonstrate, in several bioassay steps, that less-volatile, heavier analogues retain their pre-ingestive feeding inhibition activity in the large pine weevil, Hylobius abietis (L.) for a longer time. The first step in the evaluation of the biological activity of 12 carvone analogues was a micro-assay, a choice test lasting 4 h. Compounds active at 100 nmol/cm(2) were further dose-response tested to give the effective dose needed to inhibit feeding by 50% (ED50). Of the 14 compounds tested, including both carvone enantiomers, seven heavier analogues were active at low doses (had low ED50 values). As expected from their lower vapour pressure compared with carvone, the heavier analogues proved more resistant to evaporation before testing. Thus, whereas the effect of 8-hydroxy-p-menth-en-6-one 4 declined after 2 days, some of the compounds with high molar masses, such as the alkylhydroxymenthenones 6 and 8, retained a stable activity for 4 days. The retained activity at 4 days was strongly correlated to molecular mass and boiling point. When tested on natural material (host Pinus sylvestris L. twig sections for 48 h), the heavier analogues showed a rather low activity. Probably, the activity of the more volatile compound carvone (1) is due to a repellent effect (olfactory mode) rather than the deterrent effects (gustatory mode) of the heavier compounds. In agreement with the relatively low activity on twigs in the laboratory, the hydroxymenthenone 4 was not active in the field when tested for 2 months as a 1 : 9 mixture with a polar wax.

    Optimizing the attractiveness of pheromone baits used for trapping the four-eyed spruce bark beetle Polygraphus poligraphus2019In: Journal of applied entomology, ISSN 0931-2048, E-ISSN 1439-0418, Vol. 143, no 7, p. 721-730Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bark beetles have caused extensive damage to forests in central Sweden during the past decade, and the four-eyed spruce bark beetle, Polygraphus poligraphus, seems to be involved. However, its role in these bark beetle outbreaks is still not clear. The purpose of this study was to develop an efficient pheromone bait for P. poligraphus, which would make it possible to study the species more carefully and thereby contribute to protect exposed forests in an environmentally friendly way. Three field studies were conducted in 2015, 2016 and 2018 in Medelpad, county of Västernorrland, Sweden. The pheromone of P. poligraphus, (−)-terpinen-4-ol, was tested at different release rates and in different enantiomeric purities, to find the most attractive formulation for the beetles. It was also tested in combination with racemic frontalin, a compound which has previously been shown to produce a synergistic effect together with (−)-terpinen-4-ol of low enantiomeric purity; 52% ee. Other compounds, chosen based on responses from electroantennographic studies, were also tested in an attempt to find additional attractants and repellents for P. poligraphus. The most attractive treatment tested was enantiomerically pure (−)-terpinen-4-ol (99% ee). When the enantiomeric purity was lower (50% ee), the trap catches was lowered to levels comparable to the catches for unbaited control traps. A strong synergistic effect with frontalin was observed for (−)-terpinen-4-ol of low enantiomeric purity (50% ee) but not for the enantiomerically pure compound (99% ee). The release rate of (−)-terpinen-4-ol (99% ee) was shown to be an important factor. For the combination of frontalin and (−)-terpinen-4-ol (50% ee), the attraction seemed strongest when (−)-terpinen-4-ol was released at a higher rate than frontalin. An interesting and novel result was that a repellent compound, α-terpineol, was identified in our studies. Our results from field studies and electroantennography recordings also indicate that (+)-terpinen-4-ol is a repellent for P. poligraphus.
