The use of insecticide impregnated targets


, : The use of insecticide impregnated targets. Publication International Scientific Council for Trypanosomiasis Research and Control ( 114): 466

Insecticide-impregnated blue cotton targets have proved to be an effective means of controlling populations of both Glossina p. palpalis and G. tachinoides in Nigeria. Their combined uses with biconical traps have enhanced the reduction of a G. p. palpalis population to a lower level than would have been with the biconical traps used alone prior to sterile male releases.

In the Ghibe valley, south-west Ethiopia, a tsetse control trial using deltamethrin-impregnated targets was started in May 1990. The mean relative density of the main vector, Glossina pallidipes, fell from 2.1 flies per trap per day in the 12 mont...
