Sterile Insect Technique. The Sterile Insect Technique, best known by its acronym SIT and also identified as the Sterile Insect Release Method (SIRM), is a biologically-based method for the management of key insect pests of agricultural and medical/veterinary the FAO glossary, the Sterile Insect Technique is defined as "a method of pest control using area-wide inundative releases. 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. The Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) is a form of insect birth control. The process involves rearing large quantities of sterilized male mosquitoes in dedicated facilities, and then releasing them to mate with females in the wild. As they do not produce any . 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:
