Blanket applications of insecticides from aircraft or from ground aerosol machines can give good and rapid results; however, as knowledge of the habits and behaviour of Glossina species grows, the discriminative application of insecticides can be made more precise, economical and effective. This method of using the residual insecticides seems to be the most promising for the by: Many large scale programmes to control tsetse flies are now based on aerial application of insecticides and, although they often involve a high financial commitment, aerial spraying may be less expensive than ground spraying in terms of unit area covered, depending on the insecticide selected and the amount of ground per unit area. Finally, modern methods for the control of tsetse are reviewed, leading to the conclusion that predictive modelling of disease risk areas can make a valuable contribution to cost-efficient and effective fly control.   Tsetse flies: Their biology and control using area-wide integrated pest management approaches Article Literature Review (PDF Available) in Journal of Invertebrate Pathology (Supplement 1.

Insecticidal control is the only proven method available for large-scale use at the present time. Various methods of application are given and, of these, selective residual ground spraying and the aerosol aerial technique are more fully assessed. The necessity for more sensitive tsetse population surveying techniques is. The Micronair aerial product range has become the international standard for aerial application of ULV insecticides and larvicides to control mosquitoes, tsetse flies and other flying insects in environmental health applications. The Micronair aerial spraying range now includes. PROSPECTS FOR TSETSE CONTROL G.A. VALE Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Control Branch, Department of Veterinary Services, P.O.

1. Introduction. For the planner, the field of tsetse and trypanosomosis control poses a particularly complex decision-making problem. First, there is a wide range of intervention techniques to be assessed, which include either tackling the parasite by treating livestock with trypanocides, or controlling the vector through insecticide-treated traps or cattle, aerial spraying, ground spraying Cited by:   The literature relating to various insecticidal methods and tsetse control operations involving ground spraying, helicopter residual spraying, application of low dosage aerosols from fixed-wing aircraft and chemically impregnated traps is reviewed, and research and development relating to both the entomological and application aspects of chemical control are by: The control of tsetse flies must be based on the practical application of ecological knowledge by methods involving either a direct attack upon the fly (such as trapping or the use of insecticides) or an indirect attack (such as bush clearing or game destruction to eliminate the fly's habitat or food supply); these methods are dealt with in some by: 1 SUMMARY The rearing of tsetse flies for the sterile insect technique has been a laborious procedure in the past. The purpose of this co-ordinated research project (CRP) “Automation for tsetse mass rearing for use in sterile insect technique programmes” was to develop appropriate semi- automated procedures to simplify the rearing, reduce the cost and standardize the product.
