    Abstract : A simulation model of sterile insect releases was constructed based on a logistic equation of population growth. Reduction of sexual competitive ability in mass-reared and sterilized males and evolutionary change of mate preference in wild females were incorporated into the model. The results suggested that the effect of the reduction of competitive ability on sterile insect releasesterile insect releaseSubject Category: Techniques, Methodologies and Equipment

    is substantial but that of female mate preference slight. The number of sterile males released should be increased to overcome the evolution of mate preference in females. However, this does not seem to be a serious obstacle for eradicating the melon fly [Bactrocera cucurbitaebactrocera cucurbitaeSubject Category: Organism Names
