The BugTag SIT series are radiation process verification indicator devices used in the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) program.
The SIT was introduced as an environmentally friendly method of insect pest control. SIT labs around the world rear, sterilize, and release pests of concern to agriculture in that region. In some instances, the program is intended to eradicate a pest completely. Verification of the sterilization of these insects is an important component of SIT as non-sterile pests could, when released, breed and establish new colonies.
