This talk will discuss the application of mating disruption for control of LBAM, including an historical perspective on its use and methodology as well as information on recent tests aimed at developing aerial application methods for LBAM mating disruption formulations. If time allows, potential utility and current status of other sex-denial techniques (male annihilation, mass trapping) may be discussed briefly relative to their applicability for LBAM.
