A trial of odour baited targets to control the tsetse fly, Glossina morsitans centralis (Diptera: Glossinidae) in west Zambia

Targets of black cloth with or without flanking netting panels (ca. 1 m tall × 1.7 m) baited with acetone (130 mg/h) and 1-octen-3-ol (0.5 mg/h), coated with deltamethrin suspension concentrate and deployed at 4/km2, produced a decline of 3% per day in the apparent density of the tsetse fly Glossina morsitans centralis Machado in 500 km2 of the Western Province of Zambia. Flies were eradicated in a year as evidenced by the absence of catches from flyrounds and traps and the elimination of the transmission of trypanosomiasis. The promise of the target technique is confirmed but the need for its further development is emphasized.
