The Sterile Insect Technology (SIT) is a nonpolluting method of control of the invading insects that transmit the disease. The method relies on the release of sterile or treated males in order to reduce the wild population of anopheles mosquito. We propose two mathematical models. The first model governs the dynamics of anopheles mosquito. The second model, the SIT model, deals with the interaction between treated males and wild female anopheles. Using the theory of monotone operators, we… CONTINUE READING
