Y-tube with high quality glass that can be easily washed and can be used subsequent reuse. This is used to study olfaction preference of insects in two choices. The size and the body shape can be vary and could be provided based on the requirement. Standard supply has 10cm stem length and 8cm arm length for each of the arm. We can design a custom olfactometer.

An insectPRO Y-tube olfactometer is a device used to study insect responses to semiochemicals. Semiochemicals are chemicals that insects use to communicate with each other. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as finding food, mates, or nesting sites. A insectPRO Y-tube olfactometer consists of a Y-shaped glass tube with two arms. One arm is connected to a source of semiochemicals, and the other arm is connected to a control chamber. The insect is placed in the center of the Y-tube, and air is blown through the tube. If the insect is attracted to the semiochemicals, it will move towards the arm that is connected to the source.

Y-tube olfactometers are a valuable tool for studying insect olfaction. They can be used to identify the semiochemicals that insects are attracted to, and they can also be used to study how insects respond to different concentrations of semiochemicals.

insectPRO Y-tube olfactometers are used to study a variety of insect behaviors, such as:

  • Attraction to food sources
  • Attraction to mates
  • Attraction to nesting sites
  • Avoidance of predators
  • Response to pheromones

Y-tube olfactometers are a valuable tool for research on insect behavior. They allow scientists to study how insects respond to a variety of stimuli, and this information can be used to develop strategies for pest control and conservation.

Here are some of the advantages of using a Y-tube olfactometer to study semiochemicals:

  • It is a simple and easy-to-use device.
  • It is a non-invasive method of testing insect olfaction.
  • It can be used to study a wide range of insects.
  • It can be used to study a wide range of semiochemicals.

Here are some of the disadvantages of using a Y-tube olfactometer to study semiochemicals:

  • It can be difficult to control the airflow through the tube. However, insectPRO Y-tube olfactometers comes with air control systems so that delivery of the air is consistent and study during the study period.
  • It can be difficult to ensure that the insect is only exposed to the semiochemicals that you want it to be exposed to. It is nonspecific exposing of the semio chemicals. Target exposing the chemicals to only few insects is not possible. The exposure is whole sum and to all insects at a time
  • It can be difficult to measure the insect's response to the semiochemicals. This unit is mostly suitable for initial evaluation of responses of insects towards known chemicals. Later, more specific instruments like antennogram may be used to fine tune the results.

Overall, Y-tube olfactometers are a valuable tool for studying insect olfaction. They are simple to use, non-invasive, and can be used to study a wide range of insects and semiochemicals.

A two-way olfactometer is a very useful instrument employed to investigate the olfactory-driven behaviors of insects, especially in reaction to volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs either derived naturally or made in laboratory. Within the realm of aphid studies, using simple two-way olfactometer is essential to understand their preferential responses. For instance, Webster et al. (2008) demonstrated that aphids could distinguish between varying plant volatiles using this device, further elucidating their intricate host-seeking behaviors. The standard structure of a two-way olfactometer comprises a main chamber where aphids are released, flanked by two arms emitting separate odor cues. The unit is unique in its simple design since aphids are small and won't require a large releasing area, the design even suits like whiteflies, midges etc.

The choice study compounds of VOCs may come from host or non-host plants, synthesized chemicals mimicking natural odors, or even emissions from aphid predators or competitors, as highlighted in the work of Bruce et al. (2005). Given a choice, aphids navigate towards one of the odor sources. This movement, as Du et al. (1998) noted, unravels key aspects of their olfactory predilections. The significance of these findings is instrumental in understanding insect's preferences which in turn helps to devise control strategies. Aphids, akin to myriad insects, are profoundly dependent on olfaction to discern appropriate host plants and eschew predators. Comprehending the precise olfactory stimuli that allure or deter aphids equips researchers to innovate enhanced pest control measures. As postulated by Zhu and Park (2005), certain plant VOCs have potential as repellents or lures in insect traps. Therefore, the two-way olfactometer stands as a central instrument in entomological inquiries, championing sustainable and precision-driven aphid control techniques.
