Ethyl (E,Z)-2,4-decadienoate (pear ester) is known to be a kairomonal attractant for both male and female codling moths, Cydia pomonella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae). Electroantennographic (EAG) studies were conducted to investigate the sensitivities of codling moth, the chestnut torticid species Cydia fagiglandana (Zeller), Cydia splendana (Hubner), and Pammene fasciana L., and the green budmoth Hedya nubiferana Haworth to pear ester. The attractiveness of this compound to the different species was tested in several Þeld-trapping experiments conducted in Italy. The EAG responses of the different tortricids species were dose-dependent. The Þeld-trapping experiments conÞrmed the attractiveness of the compound to codling moth; similar activity was also shown on the chestnut tortricids in their respective host plant environment.
