cis-9-Tricosene - CAS 27519-02-4

cis-9-Tricosene (Cat No.:H000059), also known as musculature, is a colorless or pale yellow liquid with a distinct musky odor. It’s a synthetic compound used in insect control, particularly as a powerful attractant for houseflies and other filth flies. By mimicking the natural pheromones emitted by female flies, cis-9-triclosan lures male flies to traps or baits, disrupting their reproductive cycle and aiding in pest management. Its specificity for certain fly species minimizes non-target impacts. Due to its efficacy and environmentally friendly nature, cis-9-tricosene plays a pivotal role in integrated pest management strategies and agricultural practices aimed at reducing fly populations.
