Abstract: 

Stem borer moth, Sesamia cretica Lederer, causes major damage on sugarcane. Sex Pheromone ofS. cretica was synthesized in the chemical laboratory of Iranian Research Institute of Plant Protection. Efficacy of the synthesized pheromone with 3 types imported pheromone ofS. cretica from Russell, Econex & Silvanderson companies were tested at the fields of Sugar cane Agro-Industrial Company of Ahvaz during 2014. Also, attractiveness of the synthesized pheromone was investigated with funnel and delta traps.
The results showed significant differences among treatments (p<0.01). The synthetic pheromone with doses of 0.5, 1 and 2 mg had more attractant (5±0.91, 2.75±0.45 and 3.75±0.85 mean±SE, respectively) in comparison with the imported pheromones that had no moth capture. Analysis of the imported pheromones by mass spectroscopy devices indicated these pheromones contain only two molecules including (Z) -9-tetradecen-1-ol and (Z) -9-tetradecen-1-ylacetate. None of the imported pheromones had third molecule (Z) -11-hexadecen-1-ol, and for this reason they had no attraction for S. cretica in the field experiments. Funnel traps with doses of 1 and 2 mg had the most trapping (12.25±2.68 and 11.25±2.80, respectively). Delta trap treatments with doses of 1and 2 mg had less capture (0.00±0.00 and 0.25±0.25). Therefore, we can conclude that proper formulation forS. cretica sex pheromone with three molecules and a funnel trap is the most suitable shape for trappingS. cretica.
