The unique genetic phenomena responsible for inherited sterility (IS) in Lepidoptera and some other arthropods, as compared with full sterility, provide advantages for pest control. Lepidopteran females are usually more sensitive to radiation than males of the same species. This allows the radiation dose to be adjusted to suit programme requirements. When partially sterile males mate with wild females, the radiation-induced deleterious effects are inherited by the F1 generation. As a result… Expand
Cytological Attributes of Sperm Bundles Unique to F1 Progeny of Irradiated Male Lepidoptera: Relevance to Sterile Insect Technique Programs
TLDR
Observations on 6 pest species in 5 families of Lepidoptera indicate that F1 males (sterile) from irradiated fathers can be distinguished from fertile males by the nuclei cluster in the eupyrene sperm bundles. Expand
Effects of radiation on inherited sterility in the European grapevine moth (Lobesia botrana).
TLDR
The feasibility of controlling L. botrana using SIT-IS is demonstrated, adding this method to the arsenal of environmentally friendly tools to control this pest may assist in further reducing the use of insecticides on edible crops. Expand
Development of Genetic Sexing Strains in Lepidoptera: from Traditional to Transgenic Approaches
TLDR
Mendelian approaches that are currently available to separate large numbers of males and females efficiently for different lepidopteran species are outlined and their difficulties and constraints are described. Expand
Effects of X-rays on Tuta absoluta for use in inherited sterility programmes
TLDR
Inherited sterility effects were manifested by a significant reduction in the F1 fecundity, F1 fertility, and the amount of larvae and pupae produced and the starting point for implementing the inherited sterility in T. absoluta is provided. Expand
Evaluation of partial sterility in mating performance and reproduction of the West Indian sweetpotato weevil, Euscepes postfasciatus
TLDR
This study evaluated the balance between the irradiation dose and both fertility and mating propensity in Euscepes postfasciatus (Fairmaire) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) for 22 days following irradiation and discusses the possibility of the application of partially sterilized insects in eradication programs. Expand
Assessment of Effect of Partial Sterility on Mating Performance in Sweetpotato Weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that partial sterilization can be highly advantageous in eradication programs for the sweetpotato weevil because of the advantages of the application of partial irradiation in insect eradications programs. Expand
Parental and F1 sterility of Eldana saccharina Walker (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae).
To assess suitability of Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) as a pest management strategy against Eldana saccharina, laboratory reared adult males and females were exposed to increasing doses ofExpand
Male‐killing bacteria as agents of insect pest control
TLDR
While both techniques can suppress or eliminate the pest on their own, combined application of the male-killing technique and the sterile insect technique substantially increases pest control efficiency. Expand

INHERITED STERILITY IN PROGENY OF IRRADIATED MALE CABBAGE LOOPERS.
TLDR
The complete sterility obtained in the F1 generation when only a substerilizing dose of radiation was given to the male parent may prove of added value in using the sterile-male technique for eradication of Lepidoptera. Expand
Development of Genetic Sexing Strains in Lepidoptera: from Traditional to Transgenic Approaches
TLDR
Mendelian approaches that are currently available to separate large numbers of males and females efficiently for different lepidopteran species are outlined and their difficulties and constraints are described. Expand
Inherited sterility in codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae): effect of substerilizing doses of radiation on insect fecundity, fertility, and control.
TLDR
Male and female codling moths, Cydia pomonella, were treated with increasing doses of gamma radiation, and the moths were either inbred or outcrossed with fertile counterparts, shifting the F1 sex ratio shifted in favor of male progeny. Expand
INHERITED STERILITY BY SUBSTERILIZING RADIATION IN SPODOPTERA LITURA (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE): BIOEFFICACY AND POTENTIAL FOR PEST SUPPRESSION
TLDR
Spodoptera litura reared on host plants and on synthetic diet were irradiated with two substerilizing doses of gamma radiation, 100 Gy and 130 Gy, and examined for inherited sterility and the impact of radiation on population characteristics was ascertained. Expand
The inheritance of radiation induced semi-sterility in Rhodnius prolixus
TLDR
It is suggested that semi-sterile males would prove more effective than releases of completely sterile males for reducing wild populations of R. prolixus, because of the delayed effects of sterilizing radiation consequent upon the holocentric structure of triatomine chromosomes. Expand
Inherited Sterility in Progeny of Irradiated Male Tobacco Budworms: Effects on Reproduction, Developmental Time, and Sex Ratio
TLDR
The data indicate that the dose of radiation given to the P1 males might be lowered to 15 krad, which would make such males more competitive with native males; thus, by overflooding a field population, one would reduce the population density and alter the population structure to one made up largely of sterile individuals. Expand
Radiation-Induced Inherited Sterility Combined with a Genetic Sexing System in Ephestia kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
TLDR
The irradiation dose-response relationship in the parental (P) generation of the moth was determined and related to the level of inherited sterility expressed in the F 1 generation, indicating that induced mutations have a sex-dependent impact. Expand
Influence of radiation-induced genetic damage on the suppressive effect of inherited sterility in the codling moth (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)
TLDR
The 10-krad dose appeared to be advantageous for use in an inherited sterility program from the standpoint of postzygotic mortality and competitiveness but did not provide full sterilization of females. Expand
Inherited Effects in F1 Progeny of Partially Sterile Male Phthorimaea operculella (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae)
TLDR
The use of substerilizing doses of irradiation could be considered as an important component in a potato tuber moth-control strategy and Inherited effects in the F 1 progeny of irradiated male parents were examined. Expand
Inheritance of radiation-induced partial sterility in the Indian meal moth.
TLDR
Fifth-stage larvae and adult males of Plodia interpunctella (Hubner) were subjected to doses of gamma radiation sufficient to produce partially sterile populations to reduce numbers of offspring in the F, generation. Expand
