Bedoukian to Present at Entomology 2024 in Phoenix this November.

This fall, Bedoukian Research, has been invited to participate in a symposium about Mating Disruption for Control of Insect Pests where we our scientists will share research conducted by Bedoukian in relation to pheromones and their ability to help disrupt mating patterns of insects. 

The symposium will be part of Entomology 2024.  This annual meeting and conference is held by the American Entomological Society.  The event will once again take place in the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, November 10-13.  Entomology 2024’s theme is “Empowering Tomorrow with Insect Science” and it is a truly unique opportunity for leading experts, researchers, and other insect professionals to connect.  Participants gain insights into the latest developments, and contribute to the vibrant community of entomologists.

The symposium about mating disruption will address the management of insect pests using synthetic sex pheromone lures. Mating disruption can easily be integrated into insect pest management programs and it offers the benefits of reducing reliance on pesticides. The goal of the symposium is to bring together scientists and industry representatives working in the area of mating disruption to present their current research activities and future plans related to the technique, and to enhance collaboration in the national and international arenas. While there will be many experts participating in this symposium, Bedoukian will specifically address combining kairomones and pheromones in monitoring lures and mating disruption which is one of the focus areas for the company.

David Bedoukian, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bedoukian, commented, “This is a great event and we are excited to be able to be a part of the discussions.  Bedoukian, under the BedoukianBio brand, has been a leader in insect pest management, offering technical grade pheromones and semiochemicals for insect monitoring, mass trapping, repellency, and mating disruption in agriculture, forestry, residential, and stored products.  This symposium allows us to share our research and we hope to also expand our knowledge from others in this same space who are presenting.”
