Overview of tsetse control strategies: need for reappraisal


, : Overview of tsetse control strategies: need for reappraisal. Kenya Veterinarian 10(2): 4

The map of tsetse (Glossina spp.) distribution in Africa remains virtually unchanged except at its periphery, despite half a century of control efforts. A plea is therefore made to turn to new control methods which allow maximal community participation.

Here we describe three antimicrobial peptide genes,...
