  • Methyl Eugenol is a type of phenylpropanoid element which means the methyl ether of eugenol. It is produced by methylation of eugenol and has alkyl group attached to its benzene ring. Methyl Eugenol is found in various essential oils.
  • Its IUPAC name is 1,2-Dimethoxy-4(prop-2-en-1-yl) benzene. Methyl eugenol will be used in insect traps and lure products to attract certain fruit flies such as the Oriental fruit fly on affected food crops. Methyl eugenol (4-allyl-1,2-dimethoxybenzene-carboxylate) and cue-lure [4-(p-acetoxyphenyl)-2-butanone] are highly attractive kairomone lures to oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel), and melon fly, B. cucurbitae (Coquillett), respectively.

Fruit Flies Attracted To Methyl Eugenol Block:

  • Bactrocera dorsalis
  • Bactrocera zonata
  • Bactrocera correcta
  • Bactrocera papayae
