Vector Control   WHO Guidance Framework for testing genetically modified mosquitoes by WHO/TDR and FNIH   The Cartagena Protocol   EFSA Guidance on Environmental Considerations for GM animals   The Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) is another approach to reduce tsetse populations. This technique is based on the fact that females mate only once in their lifetime, thus any mating with a sterile male will prevent females from giving birth to any offspring. SIT consists in rearing a large numbers of laboratory male tsetse flies which are irradiated and subsequently released in the wild to compete with wild (naturally occurring) males so that females inseminated by them[...]

Top Frequently Asked Questions:   Q: What kills the mosquito? A: A self-limiting gene is tied up to the normal processes in an insect cell, and as a result, the modified mosquitoes can’t develop properly, so it dies before it becomes an adult which can reproduce and spread disease. Q: What is SIT ? A: 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[...]
