New field methods for studying the responses of tsetse flies (Diptera, Glossinidae) to hosts

Field studies with Glossina morsitans morsitans Westw. in Rhodesia showed that hand-net catches can reduce slightly the responses of males to mobile baits and can reduce female responses by three-quarters. Description is given of methods of operating baits in the absence of men and of methods of electrocuting flies as they fly near baits, alight on baits and respond to decoy tsetse. These techniques are more efficient and objective than hand-net catching.
