Control strategies for tsetse-transmitted African trypanosomiasis


Livestock production and diseases in the Tropics Proceedings of the 5th International Conference, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 18-22 August 1986: 133-135
Control strategies for tsetse-transmitted African trypanosomiasis
The development of improved control strategies for Glossina-transmitted bovine trypanosomiasis is discussed. The use of sterile insect release (SIR) and of attractive insecticide-impregnated targets may replace insecticidal spraying. It is considered that chemotherapy must continue to play a role within the control programmes, but the few available trypanocides should be used with care to avoid the development of drug resistance.
