Using pheromones can be used at anytime during crop growth. Farmers can predict the best time to apply
insecticides. This can help reduce the insecticide applications and production costs. Also, insects do not become resistant
to using the pheromone method, and it is non-toxic.
Outbreaks or rebounds of pests, using pheromones, doesn't usually happen. This creates opportunities for the
biological control of other pests.
Sometimes, scientists cannot duplicate a pheromone for some
species of insects and the development and production costs may be quite high. Pheromones used to disrupt mating
will can also prevent moths from locating traps.
Male insects may also be attracted to pheromones
so much, that they begin to reproduce at a rapid rate.
