Tsetse eradication: Sufficiency, necessity and desirability


This report reviews the available means of tsetse control and eradication and the necessity and desirability of carrying out such campaigns. For each control method, field data are used to develop quantitative models of the time course of past tsetse control operations. The aim is to use these models to forecast the results of using one or a combination of control techniques. The control methods considered include, bush clearing and game destruction, ground spraying, odour-baited targets, insecticide-treated cattle and aerial spraying.
