Benefits of Insect birth control through sterilization

What is your thinking on this? What you are dealing with is population control...and the technology (genetic mutation, dispersion, etc)to achieve it.I will be happy to critique your thinking on this. The classic example in my lifetime was the screw worm eradication program.

I have to write down the advantages and disavantages of insectp birth control through sterilization. I have the disavantages but not the advantages(benefits)

Avantages? Cost, can be dispersed over a wide geographic region, even across countries. Is specific to the insect species. Does not harm other species. Once established, it can be maintained with little cost.

Thank you so much!!! Where did you get this information from?

what are the advantages and disavantages of insect hormones


It came from experience and cognitive functioning. You can easily find references that will amplify these points. You need to do some research on your own.

I have been researching through the internet put did not come up with anything. Thanks for the information again


Have you looked? Perhaps you looked in the wrong places. Go to www.google.com and type in "insect birth control" without the quotation marks. I did that and found over 1,000,000 hits. Also, you can find additional information under the title pheromones.
