    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.   Instead of radiation, the new pgSIT (precision-guided sterile insect technique), developed over the past year-and-a-half by Kandul and Akbari in the fruit fly Drosophila, uses CRISPR to simultaneously disrupt key genes that control female viability and male fertility in pest species. pgSIT, the researchers say, results in sterile male progeny.

      3. Biological control- It is done by using other living organisms. For example- using predators, parasitoid insects, birds and some mammals. 4. Autocidal Control- It involves an employment of an organism of one or both sex to destroy the members of the same species. It has 3 techniques- a. The sterile-male technique b. The genetic technique c. 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.

      In , he was named chief of the Insects Affecting Man and Animals Division of USDA's Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine. Four years later, colleague Arthur W. Lindquist recommended to Knipling a book by Nobel laureate H. J. Muller titled "Drosophila," which discussed use of radiation to alter the genetic material of insects.   For over 50 years, the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) has been successfully used around the world to tackle pests that destroy fruit and kill livestock. The method uses radiation to sterilize male.

Proceedings of a panel on the control of livestock insect pests by the sterile-male technique, organized by the joint FAO/IAEA Division of Atomic Energy in Food and Agriculture and held in Vienna, January The sterile insect technique (SIT) is a form of pest control that uses ionizing radiation to sterilize mass-produced insects of the same type as the target pest.

The sterile insects, produced in special rearing facilities, are released systematically from the ground or air over the infested areas, where they mate with.

Springer Science & Business Media, - Science - pages. 0 Reviews. It is a challenge to bring together all relevant information about the sterile insect technique (SIT) and its. About this Book 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. The sterile insect technique (SIT) relies on area-wide mass-releases of sterile male pest insects, which mate with their wild counterparts and thereby cause a drop in the wild population.

In order to improve SIT efficacy or to avoid potential nega-tive effects of such releases, strains of insects have been developed by genetic by: 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. Insect Transgenesis and the Sterile Insect Technique.

The SIT represents an effective and ecologically safe method for area-wide pest control that reduces the pest population by mass release. Insects/Pests. Ectoparasite control can be one of the most expensive and time consuming parts of being a livestock farmer. It is important to raise healthy animals for food and supplies.

When working hard to prevent and fight ectoparasites from harming livestock, many factors need to be considered, such as, the time of year, the type of animal. Interest in biological methods for livestock and poultry pest management is largely motivated by the development of resistance to most of the available synthetic pesticides by the major pests.

There also has been a marked increase in organic systems, and those that promote animal welfare by reducing animal densities and allowing greater freedom.

The Sterile Insect Technique was first developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and has been used successfully to target insect pests that attack crops and livestock, such as the Mediterranean fruit fly and the New World screwworm fly.

It is currently in use globally in the agriculture sector on six. This book provides recent contributions of current strategies to control insect pests written by experts in their respective fields.

Topics include semiochemicals based insect management techniques, assessment of lethal dose/concentrations, strategies for efficient biological control practices, bioinsecticidal formulations and mechanisms of action involving RNAi technology, light-trap Cited by: 2. A major reference on the principles, practice, and global application of the Sterile Insect Technique is the book " Sterile Insect Technique.

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 males compete with wild males. Sterile insect technique is a biological control method that helps reduce broad-spectrum chemical treatments.

It is used with other techniques such as protein baiting and orchard hygiene to create fruit fly-free areas, or areas of low pest prevalence. It is an area-wide technique and must be applied over large areas, to be effective. SIT is environmentally friendly, making it very acceptable.

The Third FAO/IAEA International Conference on Area-wide Management of Insect Pests: Integrating the Sterile Insect and Related Nuclear and Other Techniques is taking place this week in Vienna, Austria, to discuss new developments, trends and challenges related to insect pest management.

The conference is part of the efforts of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture to. The book then follows the problems with a brief photographic section of beneficial insects so gardeners do not kill off the bugs that help maintain environmental balance.

Much of this is due to insect attack.The sterile insect technique is the first involving insect genetics for population control, and it can be applied only to pest species that reproduce by sexual means.

It is effective only if the sexually sterile males are aggressive and successfully compete with wild males in searching for and mating with indigenous females.Farming with Native Beneficial Insects: Ecological Pest Control Solutions - Kindle edition by The Xerces Society.
