An agent-based model to simulate the boosted Sterile Insect Technique for fruit fly management

E. G. Diouf, T. Brévault, S. Ndiaye, E. Faye, A. Chailleux, P. Diatta and C. Piou,  Ecological Modelling,  468:109951. 2022.
The sterile insect technique (SIT) is a method of biological control of pests and disease vector insects. It includes mass-rearing and release of sterile males of the target species so that wild females mated with sterile males would not produce offspring. An innovative version ...

On Nonlinear Pest/Vector Control via the Sterile Insect Technique: Impact of Residual Fertility

M. S. Aronna and Y. Dumont,  Bulletin of Mathematical Biology,  82:29. 2020.
We consider a minimalist model for the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT), assuming that residual fertility can occur in the sterile male population.
