R&D Topics Addressed:

Test the hypothesis that the new 5-component sex pheromone blend of the SBW will significantly reduce the mating success of feral SBW populations at low to moderate densities. Develop an attract-icide formulation with the 5-component sex pheromone blend. Identify and develop uses for male pheromone of SBW.
