Population suppression factor reported in terms of released mating competitiveness and daily release proportion for the SIT implementations in the 12th month of the campaign. A suppression factor of 0.5 means the wild-type population was halved relative to a population with no intervention employed. Competitiveness represents a male agent’s ability to mate relative to a true wild-type male (if this value is 50%, it is half as competitive as wild-types).
