The use of insect pheromones in pest management is based on the principle that very small quantities of them, chemically synthetized, elicit the same reactions of the natural substances emitted by insects for intraspecific communication. Sex pheromones, generally emitted by females, attract only males, aggregation pheromones attract both sexes. Synthetic pheromones, used for bait in traps of different kinds, allow the capture of insects in order to monitor their populations or, in few cases, to reduce the popolation density by mass-trapping. Pheromones need to be slowly released by suitable dispensers, rubber stoppers, polyethylene vials or other more complex devices, chosen according to chemical and physical properties of various pheromones. Novapher is specialized in design amd manufacture of traps and pheromone dispensers.
