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.

Sterility Principle for Insect Control Book Visit Book. Proceedings of a Symposium, Innsbruck, July STI/PUB/, IAEA, Vienna (). The inherited sterility in insects is induced by substerilizing doses of ionizing radiation.

When partially sterile males mate with wild females, the radiation-induced deleterious effects are inherited by the F1 generation.

As a result, egg hatch is reduced and the resulting offspring are both highly sterile and predominately male. Conference Title: Sterility principle for insect control or eradication. Proceedings of a symposium on the sterility principle for insect control or eradication jointly organized by the IAEA and FAO and held in Athens, September Vienna, Austria, International Atomic Energy by:   It is a challenge to bring together all relevant information about the sterile insect technique (SIT) and its application in area-wide integrated pest management (AW- IPM) programmes; this book is the first attempt to do this in a thematic way.

Since SIT practitioners tend to operate in the context of only one insect pest species, it was also a challenge for authors to develop and write their. The sterile insect release method (SIRM) for insect pest control with gamma radiation uses the insect pest to control itself.

It provides the following advantages: where a pest insect is able to live or survive, the sterile insect will duplicate its behavior, therefore, there is no haven for the pest; the insect pest need not, reach a high population level, as is necessary before a system such.

The sterile insect technique (SIT) is an environment-friendly method of pest control that integrates well into area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM) programmes. A first of its kind, this book takes a generic, comprehensive, and global approach in describing the principles and practice of the SIT.

SIT is a species-specific and environmentally nonpolluting method of insect control that relies on the release of large numbers of sterile insects (Knipling,KrafsurDyck et al., a).Mating of released sterile males with native females leads to a decrease in the females' reproductive potential and ultimately, if males are released in sufficient numbers over a Cited by: Sterile Insect Technique.

Download book, (File Size: KB). Summary. The 28 chapters of this book, written by 50 authors from around the world, review all aspects of the SIT.

As evidenced by the successful area-wide insect pest control programmes described in this book, the sterile insect technique (SIT), a component of these programmes, has come of age.

The technology has expanded rapidly — additional target species, new rearing techniques, studies on genetics and insect behaviour, and especially integration into File Size: 53KB.

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.

The sterile insect technique (SIT) is an environment-friendly pest control method that fits into area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM) programmes.

This book describes the principles and practice of SIT, frankly evaluating its strengths and weaknesses, successes and failures.

SIT is Pages:   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.

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 method of pest control that uses area-wide release of sterile insects to reduce fertility of a field population of the same species (FAO,Hendrichs and Robinson, ) and can influence the entire population of a specific pest in a particular area (Lindquist, ).Writings of Dr.
