Recent advances in livestock keeper-based tsetse control: the way forward

Abstract

The workshop brought together researchers from various African countries who are working on one of three new approaches to livestock keeper-based tsetse control. The workshop was primarily concerned with three recent advances that appear highly relevant to livestock keeper-based tsetse control: 1. refinement of application of synthetic pyrethroids (SP) to cattle in tsetse predilection sites, 2. use of SP-impregnated netting to protect zero-grazed dairy cattle and 3. development of tsetse repellents that exploit novel 'push-pull' strategies. The report contains a review of the new technologies and then examines the way forward, by evaluating whether the new technologies are appropriate for livestock keeper-based tsetse control.
