Honey Bee (Apis mellifera) Queen Reproductive Potential Affects Queen Mandibular Gland Pheromone Composition and Worker Retinue Response

PLOS ONE, 11(6), e0156027.

By: J. Rangel n, K. Böröczky n, C. Schal n & D. Tarpy n

Ed(s): F. Nascimento

MeSH headings : Animals; Bees / chemistry; Bees / physiology; Behavior, Animal; Exocrine Glands / metabolism; Female; Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry; Insect Hormones / chemistry; Insect Hormones / physiology; Larva / chemistry; Larva / physiology; Male; Mandible / metabolism; Pheromones / chemistry; Pheromones / physiology; Reproduction / physiology; Scent Glands / metabolism; Social Behavior
TL;DR: The results indicate that the age at which honey bee larvae enter the “queen-specific” developmental pathway influences the chemical composition of queen mandibular glands and worker behavior, however, these changes are not consistent across years, suggesting that other external factors may play important roles in modulating queen quality.

Bacteria Stimulate Hatching of Yellow Fever Mosquito Eggs

PLoS ONE, 6(9), e24409.

By: L. Ponnusamy n, K. Böröczky n, D. Wesson*, C. Schal n & C. Apperson n

Ed(s): F. Leulier

MeSH headings : Aedes / microbiology; Aedes / physiology; Animals; Bacteria; Female; Male; Ovum / microbiology; Ovum / physiology; Plant Leaves / chemistry; Plant Leaves / microbiology; Quercus / chemistry; Quercus / microbiology; Reproduction / physiology; Yellow Fever / transmission
TL;DR: There is compelling evidence that bacteria or water-soluble compounds secreted by bacteria, not just low DO concentration, stimulate hatching of Ae. (via Semantic Scholar)

2010 journal article

Oviposition Responses of the Mosquitoes Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus to Experimental Plant Infusions in Laboratory Bioassays

Journal of Chemical Ecology, 36(7), 709–719.

By: L. Ponnusamy n, N. Xu n, K. Böröczky n, D. Wesson*, L. Abu Ayyash n, C. Schal n, C. Apperson n

author keywords: Aedes aegypti; Aedes albopictus; Oviposition; Attractants; Plant infusion; Fermentation; Microbe-insect interactions
MeSH headings : Aedes / physiology; Animals; Behavior, Animal; Biomass; Female; Fermentation; Oviposition; Plant Leaves / chemistry; Poaceae / chemistry; Quercus / chemistry; Time Factors
TL;DR: Both mosquito species were more attracted to a non-sterile white oak leaf infusion than to white oak Leaf infusion that was prepared using sterilized plant material and water, thus suggesting a role for microbial activity in the production of odorants that mediate the oviposition response of gravid mosquitoes.

Monoalkenes as Contact Sex Pheromone Components of the Woodwasp Sirex noctilio


By: K. Boeroeczky, D. Crook, T. Jones*, J. Kenny*, K. Zylstra, V. Mastro, J. Tumlinson*

author keywords: Sirex noctilio; Mating behavior; Cuticular lipids; Contact sex pheromone components; Hymenoptera; Siricidae
MeSH headings : Alkenes / chemistry; Alkenes / pharmacology; Animals; Biological Assay; Copulation / drug effects; Female; Hymenoptera / chemistry; Hymenoptera / drug effects; Hymenoptera / physiology; Lipids / chemistry; Lipids / pharmacology; Male; Sex Attractants / chemistry; Sex Attractants / pharmacology; Skin / chemistry
TL;DR: A pheromone on the cuticle of females of the woodwasp Sirex noctilio induces conspecific males to attempt copulation, and analysis of the hexane extract revealed saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons as major components of the female cuticle. (via Semantic Scholar)
