Jorge Hendrichs, Alan Robinson, in Encyclopedia of Insects (Second Edition), The sterile insect technique (SIT) is a biologically based method for the control of key insect pests.

Wild female insects inseminated by released, radiation-sterilized males do not reproduce, and repeated releases of the sterilized insects lead to a reduction in pest population numbers. The sterile insect technique (SIT) is a method of biological insect control, whereby overwhelming numbers of sterile insects are released into the wild.

The released insects are preferably male, as this is more cost-effective and the females may in some situations cause damage by laying eggs in the crop, or, in the case of mosquitoes, taking blood from humans.

Sterile Insect Technique. The Sterile Insect Technique, best known by its acronym SIT and Insect control by the sterile-male technique book identified as the Sterile Insect Release Method (SIRM), is a biologically-based method for the management of key insect pests of agricultural and medical/veterinary the FAO glossary, the Sterile Insect Technique is defined as "a method of pest control using area-wide inundative releases.

The sterile insect technique is an environmentally-friendly insect pest control method involving the mass-rearing and sterilization, using radiation, of a target pest, followed by the systematic area-wide release of the sterile males by air over defined areas, where they mate with wild females resulting in no offspring and a declining pest population.

The Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) is a form of insect birth control. The process involves rearing large quantities of sterilized male mosquitoes in dedicated facilities, and then releasing them to mate with females in the wild.

As they do not produce any. The sterile insect technique (SIT 1) is a method Insect control by the sterile-male technique book pest insect control with a strong record of success against a range of agricultural pest insects (Dyck et al.

In this report, compiled mainly from the papers read at a meeting in Vienna in Julya review is given of recent advances in knowledge of methods of causing sterility in insects by means of irradiation, chemosterilants or induced mutation and of work preparatory to the application of this knowledge to the control of insect pests.

The report is arranged in 11 sections, and information on. The sterile insect technique is a method of biological control that uses sterile male insects to reduce the reproductive rate of a species of target insect.

Sterile insect technique is effective in many insect species because the female only mates once during her lifetime. She carries her mate's genetic material with her for the rest of her. Abstract. The sterile male technique is a biological pest control method in which sterilized members of a target insect species are released into an infested region in order to dilute the native population’s reproductive by: In addition sterile insect technique will: Improve the quality and quantity of fruit production while reducing pesticide use and promoting integrated pest management Enable resource-limited farmers and community dwellers in an SIT area to grow fruit fly-free, insecticide-free fruit for home consumption and to expand fruit production beyond.

The sterile insect release method (SIRM) of pest population suppression was first conceived by E. Knipling (). It sometimes goes by the names "sterile male technique" and "autocidal control".

The method consists of releasing large numbers of sterilized insects into the environment to reduce the probability that members of a natural. Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) Definition and principles; The Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) (or sterile male technique) is an autocidal insect control method.

It is a species-specific genetic “birth control” method that is inversely density-dependent, becoming more effective as the size of the target population decreases. Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) is one control strategy that is gaining renewed interest for the control of mosquito populations [].

The technique involves the mass release of males sterilized through radiological or chemical means. These mate with the Cited by: 9.

We present a theoretical study of the management of a campaign to eradicate an invasive population of Mediterranean fruit flies, Ceratitis capitata (Wied.), by application of the sterile insect technique, or SIT. The model for the process consists of three interacting populations: wild females, released sterile males, and females in the rearing by: 8.

Edward F. Knipling and Dr. Raymond C. Bushland are being cited for research that led to the “sterile insect technique,” in which lab-raised and sterilized male insects are used to overwhelm and eventually eradicate native pest populations.

The sterile insect technique (SIT) is an environmentally friendly method for the biological control of pests using area-wide inundative release of sterile insects to reduce reproduction in a field population of the same species (IPPC, ).

SIT technique may be applied as part of an area-wide control (integrated pest management) approach of insects of medical, veterinary, and agricultural. The OP is confusing two definitions of "sterile." One means "infertile," the other means "disinfected." Sterile insect technique or SIT uses the first definition.

The SIT involves mass breeding huge quantities of target insects in a "factory" and sterilizing the males by exposing them to low doses of radiation.

Only by altering spray procedures and reintroducing the beetle was the scale insect again controlled. The Sterile Male Technique This technique was first applied against the screwworm fly, a serious pest of cattle. The female flies lay their eggs in sores or other open wounds on the animals.

controversial history. The concept, operation, and outcomes of SIT programs have been criticized heavily and acceptance of this areawide approach to insect management is by: The sterile insect technique (SIT) is arguably the most ecologically-compatible means of pest control in existence.

It is not a stand-alone technology, but should be integrated with other pest management technologies, such as bait application and sanitation, in an area-wide programme.
