Suppression of a SANG Ae. albopictus wild-type population by the IITc approach. The IITc trials were characterized by the periodical release (a release for generation) of ARwP individuals at 5:1 ratio with SANG males. Male releases were 1% contaminated by ARwP females. Under the tested experimental conditions the wild-type population was rapidly suppressed however, in 1 case out of 5, the ARwP infection type replaced SANG and established, leading to the failure of the control strategy. 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 for the IITc trials was 1.04
