What are Pheromones?
Pheromones are airborne molecules that trigger a certain response in insects and other living organisms.
Insect pheromones are volatile compounds that are emitted to elicit a behavioural response in other insects of the same species. The molecules trigger a specific reaction, for example, to initiate behavioural responses for mating or development process.
