Resistance to genetic insect control: Modelling the effects of space

Abstract:

Genetic insect control, such as self-limiting RIDL (Release of Insects Carrying a Dominant Lethal) technology, is a development of the sterile insect technique which is proposed to suppress wild populations of a number of major agricultural and public health insect pests. This is achieved by mass rearing and releasing male insects that are homozygous for a repressible dominant lethal genetic construct, which causes death in progeny when inherited. The released genetically engineered (‘GE’) in...
