The authors have read the journal's policy and they have the following potential conflicts: LA is an employee and NA was a collaborative DPhil/PhD student of Oxitec Limited, which therefore provided salary and other support for the research program. Those authors have shares or share options in Oxitec Ltd (LA) or an indirect interest therein (NA). Both Oxitec Ltd and the University of Oxford have one or more patents or patent applications related to the broader subject of this paper, i.e. the RIDL (Release of Insects carrying a Dominant Lethal) technology. RIDL® is a registered trademark of Oxitec Ltd. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLoS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
