Abstract

Bioreplication, the direct replication of a biological structure to copy at least one of its functionalities, is a newly emerging concept within the ambit of engineered biomimicry. An industrially scalable bioreplication process with nanoscale fidelity has been devised and improved to produce visual decoys of an invasive insect species. The decoys are very successful in luring males of the species towards attempted copulation followed by electrocution, thereby disrupting the reproduction cycle and providing forestry managers a tool to limit the spread of the invasive species.
