How ISCA Uses Semiochemicals to Change Insect Behavior
What Are Semiochemicals?

Semiochemicals are naturally-occurring chemicals that organisms (including insects and plants) emit that affect the behavior of other organisms. These semiochemicals communicate important information to insects – such as who to mate with, which plants to attack, and which plants to avoid.

By using semiochemicals to our advantage, we can manipulate the behavior of insects by “tricking” them into doing what we want them to do – most notably, preventing them from procreating and deterring them from attacking crops.
