Host location and feeding patterns in tsetse

Host location and feeding patterns in tsetse

Insect Science and its Application 1: 23-30

Examples from recent literature are used to discuss the host location behaviour of Glossina in relation to feeding patterns. Species of Glossina recognise potential hosts by their visual and olfactory characteristics. These, and mechanical stimulation, will activate flies and initiate host-oriented responses.
