In July 1974 a 3-year feasibility study was initiated on St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, on the use of the sterile-male technique as a replacement or adjunct to insecticidal or physical measures to control or eliminate the stable fly, Stomoxys calcitrans . Sterile male insects, ca. 1 × 105/day (5 days/wk), were released over the 218 km2 island for 18 months in 1976–1977. Because of the large wild stable fly population, some of the major breeding sites were larvicided at intervals throughout the… CONTINUE READING
