Rice planthoppers, the three dominant species of which are the white-backed planthopper, brown planthopper and small brown planthopper, are major pests of rice crops in our country. These species cause massive crop losses by sucking assimilates from phloem and transmitting multiple rice viruses. Because rice planthoppers have developed high resistance to common chemical pesticides, developing alternative, green, pest management methods is essential to controlling these pests. “Reverse chemical ecology”, which aims to find chemicals that can be used as lures to capture pest insects in the field, is one of the most desirable, alternative, green pest-control solutions. Development of such lures first requires functional research on the crucial olfactory system genes of rice planthoppers to understand their olfactory mechanism. Previous studies have demonstrated that rice planthoppers have an elaborate olfactory system that allows them to locate rice plants by tracking rice plant volatiles. This review comprehensively summarizes recent progress in research on the olfactory mechanism of rice planthoppers, and thereby provides a foundation for the development of green pest management techniques to control these pests.
