Abstract: This review discusses the latest innovations in delivery technologies for RNA interference (RNAi) in gene knockdown in insects and acarines of medical and veterinary significance. RNAi offers unprecedented levels of precision in the study, control or even protection of invertebrate pests, but fundamental to its successful deployment is the need to deliver “trigger” RNA in a fashion that addresses the potential barriers of RNAi efficiency, safety, and the intended purpose of the knockdown.
