Behavioral aspects were studied by the olfactory response of mated females, with a Y-type olfactometer. We assessed predator response to spittlebug nymphs vs.
(2006): The orientation of the gravid females was determined by counting the females that headed to one of the olfactometer arms with its specific odour.
However, a study that characterized boll weevil responses to the volatiles released by cotton in different growth stages and herbivorous conditions in olfactometer, showed that A.
Additionally, it helped set up an Odour Monitoring Programme and the GCC's only Olfactometer Laboratory that enables the facility to better identify and control odours, and respond to potential odour complaints.
lectularius, the olfactometer study showed preference of bedbugs towards the bedbug exposed paper than the bedbug volatiles (23, 28) which corroborates our findings on the presence of aggregating semiochemical components in the excreta extract of C.
To address questions of spatial summation within the aesthetasc array and competency of ORNs along the array, we designed an olfactometer to effect regional stimulation of the aesthetasc array while recording electrical activity from olfactory lobe (OL) interneurons in the brain of the crayfish Procambarus clarkii Girard.
