Abstract

Preference for resting sites and the influence of aggregation pheromones on these preferences were studied in six species of cockroaches. Differences were observed between species of three families in preferences for vertical resting sites and in tendencies to rest on surfaces impregnated with aggregation pheromones. Aggregation pheromones were shown to be less than strictly species specific, and they did not appear to be used as an olfactory cue for aggregation in some species.
