Title: Mathematical model to assess the control of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes by the sterile insect technique
Author: Esteva, L
Yang, HM
Abstract: We propose a mathematical model to assess the effects of irradiated (or transgenic) male insects introduction in a previously infested region. The release of sterile male insects aims to displace gradually the natural (wild) insect from the habitat. We discuss the suitability of this release technique when applied to peri-domestically adapted Aedes aegypti mosquitoes which are transmissors of Yellow Fever and Dengue disease.
