Methyl (E,E,Z)-2,4,6-decatrienoate is the aggregation pheromone of brown-winged stink bug Plautia stali (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae). Attractiveness of the pheromone synthesized in Korea was compared with that of synthesized in Japan in the field. A lure filled with hexane was used as a control treatment. Catches in trap baited with Korean pheromone was significantly higher than that baited with Japanese one only in one orchard out of three sweet persimmon orchards in 2008. However there was no difference in trap catches between Korean and Japanese pheromones at three sites in 2009. Gas chromatography analysis showed that the components of both pheromones were not different each other. Monitoring of P. stali seasonal fluctuation using Korean pheromone showed that the bugs were most captured in August, 2008 and in September, 2009.
