The concept of developing an insect rearing center at Mississippi State University (MSU) to house new rearing facilities, sponsor a yearly workshop, conduct insect rearing research, rear insects for research, and conduct other activities related to rearing was conceived in the year This sterile insect technique was used successfully with Screw flies in North America, South America, and Africa. In some areas the Screw fly was completely eradicated. This was a major breakthrough because it provided pest control without the use of chemical pesticides that might harm people or the environment.

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 Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) is the mass production, sterilisation and subsequent release of sterile insects into a target population in an area-wide integrated approach. The released sterile males mate with wild females; they thus no longer produce offspring and .

1 SUMMARY The rearing of tsetse flies for the sterile insect technique has been a laborious procedure in the past. The purpose of this co-ordinated research project (CRP) “Automation for tsetse mass rearing for use in sterile insect technique programmes” was to develop appropriate semi- automated procedures to simplify the rearing, reduce the cost and standardize the product.

Marjorie A. Hoy, in Insect Molecular Genetics (Fourth Edition), The sterile insect technique (SIT) or sterile insect release method (SIRM) was described in Chapter SIT involves mass rearing, sterilization by chemicals or irradiation, and release of large numbers of males to mate with wild females (Tan, ).Sterile males must compete with wild males and reduce reproduction by wild.
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. Principles and practice in area-wide integrated pest management Editors: V.A. Dyck, J. Hendrichs and A.S. Robinson. 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.
The Sterile Insect Technique for Control of Tsetse Flies in Africa Research is being conducted on mass-rearing techniques for two species of tsetse flies, problem and the Sterile Insect Technique provides a useful tool in the arsenal of isetse fly control methods.
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.
Tenebrio molitor L. (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), commonly known as mealworm, has been commercially produced in the US for over 70 years  and is a favorable candidate for insect rearing due to.
Automation for tsetse mass rearing for use in sterile insect technique programmes. Final report of a co-ordinated research project – IAEA-TECDOCCited by: Insect mass-rearing for a sterile insect technique (SIT) programme is designed to move beyond the largescale rearing of insects in a laboratory to the industrial production of consistently high.
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 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.

Among the control methods used for tsetse flies, Sterile Insect Technique (SIT), in the frame of area-wide integrated pest management (AW-IPM), represents an effective tactic to suppress and/or eradicate tsetse flies.

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, or SIT, has been used for decades to control insects such as the Mediterranean fruit fly. Basically, insects are exposed to radiation, which makes them sterile, [ ] X-rays Can be Used to Sterilize Mosquitoes.
