ARwP is unable to invade a wild-type Ae. albopictus population. The experiment started from from a ratio of 1:5 ARwP:SANG individuals and at 1:1 sex ratio. Due to the Bidirectional Incompatibility pattern, a fast decrease in the frequency of the ARwP infection type was observed in the following generations. Experimental data are compared with model predictions which also show a region of space illustrating the female fecundity (m) intrinsic variability. The reduced chi-square was 0.88
