The use of the pyramidal trap by rural communities in the control of sleeping sickness. Results of trials conducted in the Congo

, : The use of the pyramidal trap by rural communities in the control of sleeping sickness. Results of trials conducted in the Congo. Publication International Scientific Council for Trypanosomiasis Research and Control ( 115): 428-435

Vector control trials were conducted in 55 villages in the Niari focus of sleeping sickness, Bouenza region, Congo. Blue-black pyramidal traps provided with a capture bag containing diesel oil were hung in branches. A total of 240 514 Glossina palpalis was captured. Apparent elimination of tsetse was achieved in 9 villages, and in 38 the apparent density decreased by 90% of the initial density. Seroprevalence of sleeping sickness fell from 2.69% in 1985 to 0.4% in 1986.
