Abstract

Abstract

Technology was developed for sterilizing and packaging as many as 1 million male Wiedemann per day for field release. The average sterility produced in the males during a 1.5-year period was 98.9%. Mortality due to transport of the males in specially developed cages averaged 4.5% for 72-hour-old adults and 2.5% for 24-hour-old adults. The average mortality due to transport and field exposure of pupae was 1.2 to 9.8%, depending on the technique used.
