BigSIS has developed a proprietary platform to create a broad portfolio of sustainable insect control solutions for agriculture pests and mosquitoes. Using contemporary robotics and artificial intelligence, BigSIS has reinvented the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT), cutting insect costs by up to 90% to make this proven and powerful tool competitive with chemical insecticides, a £12.5bn global market in 2017. BigSIS sterile male insects, which mate with wild females to control pest populations, are non-GM, non-toxic and are benign to other species, including pollinators and beneficial insects. Starting with codling moth, a major apple pest, and spotted wing Drosophila, a hard-to-control pest of soft fruit, BigSIS will develop, test and commercialise a series of insect control solutions for farmers and mosquito control agencies.
