() Inherited sterility in the F, progeny of irradiated male pink by: 6. 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. Genetic control of lepidopterous pests includes the environmentally benign use of the sterile insect technique as well as the use of inherited sterility, which is especially pronounced in the first filial (F1) generation following the exposure of the parents to substerilizing doses of ionizing radiation.   The advantages of using transgenic sterility over irradiation. Currently, reproductive sterility in insects to be used in SIT programmes is induced following their exposure to gamma radiation from a 60 Co or Cs source. Chemosterilization has also been used in the past, especially for mosquitoes, however there is a laboratory report of non-target sterility [] causing concern for the.

  Although the feasibility of suppressing populations of pest insects by using the sterile-male technique has been demonstrated with several species of insects,ls) the only substantial progress toward control of a lepidopteran pest was achieved against the codling moth, Laspeyresia pomonella L Nevertheless, stored-product phycitid populations. Under these circumstances, the phenomenon of inherited or induced sterility can additionally improve population control by allowing the production of F 1 sterile .

Computer models are available for assessing SIT strategies and outcomes [2,3]. These simulation models can provide valuable insight for programme planning and conduct, but generally provide the basic framework rather.
