Gas chromatographic/mass spectrometric methods have been developed for the analysis of cuticular hydrocarbon waxes from termites, ants and house flies. A combination of electron impact, chemical ionization with ethylene oxide, methane and ammonia together with methoxy mercuration followed by reductive demercuration, enabled alkane and alkene components of waxes from Reticulitermes termites, Hypoponera eduardi, Camponotus Vagus, and Cataglyphis cursor ants and Calliphora Vomitora house flies to be characterized.
