Optimal Control Approach for Implementation of Sterile Insect Techniques

Abstract : The vector or pest control is essential to reduce the risk of vector-borne diseases or crop losses. Among the available biological control tools, the sterile insect technique (SIT) is one of the most promising. However, SIT-control campaigns must be carefully planned in advance in order to render desirable outcomes. In this paper, we design SIT-control intervention programs that can avoid the real-time monitoring of the wild population and require to mass-rear a minimal overall number of sterile insects, in order to induce a local elimination of the wild population in the shortest time. Continuous-time release programs are obtained by applying an optimal control approach, and then laying the groundwork of more practical SIT-control programs consisting of periodic impulsive releases.
