Sterile insect technique (SIT) pest control works by rearing and releasing sterile male insects of the same species as the target pest. The sterile males mate with the wild females resulting in fewer fertile eggs for the next generation. This powerful method is proven to prevent, reduce or even eliminate a target species from the treated area.
SIT also has a very environmentally friendly profile. It is non-toxic and has no off-target effects. BigSIS insect control solutions are not genetically modified (GM), so they have a rapid development pathway, straight forward regulatory processes and are compatible with organic agriculture.
Using two proprietary technologies, underpinned by contemporary artificial intelligence and automation capabilities, BigSIS has reinvented sterile insect production to overcome the limitations of traditional SIT and make this approach practical and cost-effective for a very broad range of insect pests.
