Illustration of the six plant treatments used in this study: (T1) a single maize plant in a cage infested with four stink bugs (2 males and 2 females), (T2) a single non-infested (control) maize plant in a cage, (T3) one infested plants (T3A) and one control (T3B) in the same cage but in separate pots, and (T4) one infested plants (T4A) and one control (T4B) in the in the same cage and in the same pot. T3 enabled plant–plant communication based on volatiles (air only) from the infested plant to the non-infested control plant. T4 enabled plant–plant communication based on volatiles and via roots (air and root) from the infested plant to the non-infested control plant. Photos of actual experimental units are included
