Plants are located and colonized by insects using a range of chemical signals termed semiochemicals. Together with the pheromones, that are used in communication between members of the same species, semiochemicals represent new tools for managing insect pests. Evidence for the value of semiochemical based pest management is provided by delivery using companion plants in small holder farming in sub-Saharan Africa, and shows promise for exploitation in intensive agriculture by GM technologies already being studied at the field level.
