The main objective of the project was to examine the potential use of pheromones as a method of controlling P. leniusculus. The main subjects that were examined as potential control mechanisms are sex pheromones, predator odours (expanded to include crayfish stress and alarm odours), feeding stimulants, feeding deterrents and cannibalism inducing compounds. Pheromone trials were conducted both in the laboratory and field.
