The effect of colour on the numbers, age and nutritional status of Glossina tachinoides (Diptera: Glossinidae) attracted to targets
Abstract The effect of colour on the attractiveness of cloth targets for G.tachinoides Westwood was investigated, using electrified nets. The ages and nutritional states of tsetse caught by differentExpand
