Laboratory and field experiments were carried out during the period from 2003 to 2005 to isolate and identify the pheromones of Almond Borer (AB), Capnodis carbonaria, test the attraction of AB to the isolated pheromone components and explore the potential of the isolated pheromone components to manipulate AB in stone fruits orchards. Isolation, identification, and efficacy of pheromones to manipulate AB adults were discussed. To our knowledge, this is the first record about Capnodis pheromones.
