N° /91).

For males irradiated at 15, 20, 25 Gy, the sterility were %, % and %, respectively. At a dose of 30 Gy, the mean male sterility was % after eggs examined during 31 days oviposition period. These results are very close to those of CALKINS et al.().

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.

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 Agency.

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. 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 first application of the sterile insect technique (SIT), and arguably the most successful, has been in the eradication of Cochliomyia hominivorax from all of North and Central America [3,4].

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.

If the importance of the factor of isolation had not been properly appraised in connection with early experiments to test the principle of screw- worm eradication by sterile-insect releases, it is almost certain that the sterile-male method could not have been demonstrated as a practical way to eliminate or control populations of this important.

Even when there is basic laboratory-research information about the particular pest, the adaptation of these data to large-scale quarantine or control operations requires consider- able expansion and field evaluation.

Infectious diseases remain a leading cause of morbidity, disability, and mortality worldwide. Lower respiratory infections are the third leading causes of death worldwide and their control is a constant challenge that faces health workers and public health officials in both industrialized and developing countries.
