Sand flies are small haematophagous insects that transmit Leishmania parasites. Infection with Leishmania parasites results in diseases known as leishmaniases which can be grouped into three main forms: cutaneous, mucocutaneous and visceral leishmaniases. The CDC light trap is the standard surveillance technique used to determine sand fly densities in a given locality, although this technique has been hampered by several logistic issues. Therefore, this study sought to use host blood, urine and… Expand
