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 aphid, Myzus persicae (Sulzer) to the volatiles of the woody perennial herb Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis, family Lamiaceae). Our studies using a range doses of plants have shown that, at all of the different doses tested except the weight of rosemary was 0.5 g, volatiles emitted from rosemary plants showed repellent effects on M. persicae. These findings provide new insights into the interactions between R. officinalis plants and M. persicae, which will contribute to the development of new management strategies for biological control of insect pests
