Previous studies in the forest area of Sierra Leone have shown that transmission of O. volvulus takes place many kilometres away from large breeding rivers and sometimes in open farmland. To determine where and when people in a forest village were most likely to be infected, catches of S. damnosum s.l. were carried out every week for 12 months (June 1986-May 1987), at 5 sites in and near a village (Baoma Lungibu, 19 km from Bo) where onchocerciasis was mesoendemic.
