D.
by the use of can be simply expressed by using
and last THEY in A is redundant. A and B out.

C is out because By atrracting is not correct usage. Even though we assume it were to keep parallelizm by must be used before using olfactory.

E. logically Call and Atract must be parallel.

The use of the verb 'call' should eliminate 'attracting'.

So, B,C & E out.

A - they attract is unnecessary. Just 'attract' will do.

D - My choice.
