Sample chromatograms of volatile compounds from queens that were virgins, naturally mated (NM), or instrumentally inseminated (II). Definitive identities of peaks 6, 10, 11, and 12 were not made. Peaks 10, 11, and 12 are long chain hydrocarbons. More specifically, peak 10 is possibly an octadecene isomer while peak 12 is possibly nondecane.
