Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can have an important influence on plant-insect interactions. In particular, insect behaviors are often influenced by the volatiles of both host plants and non-host plants. The objective of this study was to assess the behavioral responses of the tobacco aphid, Myzus persicae to the volatiles of Lavandula angustifolia (Lamiaceae). Our studies using a range doses of plants have shown that, When the mass of L. angustifolia was more than or equal to 4.0 g, volatiles emitted from plants showed repellent effects on M. persicae, but at masses of less than 4.0 g, M. persicae did not exhibit significantly preference. These findings provide new insights into the interactions between L. angustifolia plants and M. persicae, which will contribute to the development of new management strategies for biological control of insect pests.
