World-Wide Directory of SIT Facilities
DIR-SIT has been established with the objective of aiding the retrieval of information on
facilities in the world mass rearing sterile insects, for purposes of using them to develop autocidal approaches or as part
of operational area-wide integrated pest management programmes integrating the sterile insect technique, inherited sterility
and related biological control approaches.
For each facility and target pest the database compiles information on production
capacity, the radiation process, quality control parameters and dosimetry. The major groups of insect pests for which DIR-SIT
includes mass rearing information are fruit flies, mosquitoes, moths screwworm flies, and tsetse flies.
|| Selective - Selection is done by groups of insect pests, and by facilities aimed to use the insects produced in operational programmes. Any facility dedicated to research, academic, and or other purposes are not included
