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. Susan C. Welburn, Ian Maudlin, in Advances in Parasitology, SIT. The sterile insect technique (SIT), involving the release of artificially reared sterile males, offers an environmentally friendly option for tsetse control and has been used successfully to eliminate tsetse from Unguja Island, Zanzibar (Vreysen et al., ).However, the use of SIT in African settings has been.

The Symposium took place in May in Bangkok, Thailand. The document contains thirty-four papers on a broad range of topics concerning fruit flies, including area-wide programmes, control methods and supporting technology, chemical ecology and attractants, biology, ecology, physiology and behaviour, the Sterile Insect Technique, natural enemies and biological control, and risk analysis. The sterile insect technique (SIT 1) is a method of pest insect control with a strong record of success against a range of agricultural pest insects (Dyck et al. a). Field trials in the s and s demonstrated that the SIT could also be made to work against mosquitoes, even with the technology then available (Lofgren et al. Cited by: 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. INSECT ECOLOGY The word ecology is the modified form of ‘Oekologie’ derived from the Greek ‘Oikos’, meaning ‘Home’ and ‘Logos’ meaning ‘Discourse’ introduced by Reiter in and later anglicized to ‘Ecology’. Ecology is a multidisciplinary subject and derives support from other Size: KB.
the various papers presented, the present book includes the recommenda~ tions of the Panel, which included several experts from the computer sciences. It is hoped that this publication will assist in guiding research ad ministrators and workers in the application of the sterile-male technique. The sterile-insect technique and its field applications: proceedings of a Panel on the Practical Use of the Sterile-Male Technique on Insect Control organized by the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Atomic Energy in Food and Agriculture and held in Vienna, November by International Atomic Energy Agency (Book). The document contains thirty-four papers on a broad range of topics concerning fruit flies, including area-wide programmes, control methods and supporting technology, chemical ecology and attractants, biology, ecology, physiology and behaviour, the Sterile Insect Technique, natural enemies and biological control, and risk analysis. Cottony Cushion Scale Insect. In , this insect - an import from Australia, was devastating the citrus groves of California. A U.S. entomologist went to Australia to find a natural enemy and came back with the vedalia beetle, a species of lady ed in California, the beetle quickly brought the scale under control.
