The most effective odour attractant for G. brevipalpis Newstead, namely a combination of octenol released at c. 9.1 mg/h, 4-methyl phenol released at c. 15.5 mg/h and acetone released at c. 350 mg/h, when used together with the smallest recommended colour target (as determined in previous studies), namely a 1.75 m wide x 1 m high black/pthalogen-blue/black target, was evaluated for the control of G. brevipalpis and G. austeni Newstead. This combination increased the catches of G. brevipalpis by…

Selective use of odour‐baited, insecticide‐treated targets to control tsetse flies Glossina austeni and G. brevipalpis in South Africa
TLDR
The effectiveness of odour‐baited targets treated with 0.8% deltamethrin in controlling Glossina austeni Newstead and G. brevipalpis Newstead was evaluated in Zululand, South Africa and a 99% reduction in G. austeni females occurred after 13 months at a target density of eight per km2 in wooded habitat; this was maintained for 22 months.

TLDR
A new trap, named the "H trap", was developed at Hellsgate Tsetse Research Station in South Africa for the simultaneous collection of live Glossina brevipalpis Newstead and Glossina austeni Newstead, which represents a different approach for trapping tsetse flies as it is fitted with lateral cones of white netting which induce the flies to take a more horizontal flight path once they have entered the trap.
Towards an Optimal Design of Target for Tsetse Control: Comparisons of Novel Targets for the Control of Palpalis Group Tsetse in West Africa
TLDR
Studying the visual responses of tsetse to different designs of target has allowed us to design more cost-effective devices for the effective control of sleeping sickness and animal trypanosomiasis in Africa.
Vector competence of Glossina austeni and Glossina brevipalpis for Trypanosoma congolense in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
TLDR
Glossina austeni plays a larger role in the epidemiology of animal trypanosomosis in KwaZulu-Natal than G. brevipalpis and therefore more focus should be aimed at the former when control measures are implemented.
A Strategy for an Area-Wide Control Campaign with an SIT Component to Establish a Tsetse- (Glossina austeni and Glossina brevipalpis) Free South Africa
TLDR
The creation of a tsetse fly-free area in South Africa and southern Mozambique would result in significant improvements to the livelihood of communal farmers owning around 350 000 cattle.
An update of the tsetse fly (Diptera: Glossinidae) distribution and African animal trypanosomosis prevalence in north-eastern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
TLDR
This study clearly indicated that both tsetse species play significant roles in trypanosome transmission and that it will be essential that any control strategy, which aims at sustainable management of the disease, should target both species.
The distribution of tsetse (Diptera: Glossinidae) and bovine trypanosomosis in the Matutuine District, Maputo Province, Mozambique.
TLDR
Survey results suggest that Glossina brevipalpis is mainly concentrated in dense vegetation along the Maputo River and in the wetlands east of the river, while G. austeni, on the other hand, was captured mainly in dense thickets in drier areas.
Navigation of Lutzomyia longipalpis (Diptera: Psychodidae) under dusk or starlight conditions.
TLDR
The results indicated that L. longipalpis can discriminate between different wavelengths at different intensities and thus have true colour vision and suggests that it may be able to navigate at dusk or under moonlight or starlight conditions using light in the blue-green-yellow part of the spectrum.
Prevalence of mixed Trypanosoma congolense infections in livestock and tsetse in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
TLDR
In South Africa, a rinderpest pandemic of the 1890s removed many host animals, resulting in the near-eradication of most tsetse species, and over time, the transmission of Savannah-type T. congolense and Kilifi-type G. brevipalpis as mixed infections could have an impact on disease manifestation in different hosts in the area.
African animal trypanosomosis (nagana) in northern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa: Strategic treatment of cattle on a farm in endemic area
TLDR
Monitoring the health of cattle herds kept in tsetse and trypanosomosis endemic areas before and after an intervention that reduces the incidence of the disease found that two to three treatments per year may be sufficient for extended protection.

A trial of odour baited targets to control the tsetse fly, Glossina morsitans centralis (Diptera: Glossinidae) in west Zambia
TLDR
Targets of black cloth baited with acetone and deltamethrin suspension concentrate produced a decline of 3% per day in the apparent density of the tsetse fly Glossina morsitans centralis Machado in 500 km 2 of the Western Province of Zambia, eradicated in a year.
A trial to control the tsetse fly, Glossina morsitans centralis, with low densities of odour‐baited targets in west Zambia
TLDR
A large‐scale trial investigated the possibility of eradicating G.m.centralis from a traditional cattle rearing area using odour‐baited targets at a reduced overall target density, thus cutting down initial material costs by about 50%.

The effect on tsetse flies (Glossina spp.) of deltamethrin applied to cattle either as a spray or incorporated into ear-tags.
TLDR
It would appear that while a deltamethrin cattle dip/spray would not protect individual oxen from knock‐down, the survival of knocked‐down flies in the field seems remote.

TLDR
Targets offer a cheap, simple and effective means of eliminating isolated populations of tsetse in Zimbabwe by reducing the populations of G. m.

Successful application of deltamethrin pour on to cattle in a campaign against tsetse flies (Glossina spp.) in the pastoral zone of Samorogouan, Burkina Faso.
TLDR
1,500-2,000 head of cattle were treated with deltamethrin 1% Spot On in an area of high tsetse densities, notably of Glossina morsitans submorsitans, showing resistance of Trypanosoma congolense to all commercially available trypanocides.
The responses of tsetse flies (Diptera, Glossinidae) to mobile and stationary baits
TLDR
The conventional view that mating and feeding functions in the response to hosts occupy distinct phases of the hunger cycle is supported, but it seems necessary to modify the conventional view by placing more emphasis on the role of mobile baits as food sources and by envisaging a definite mate-seeking response by mature females.
A Preliminary Assessment of Some Immediate and Long-Term Effects of Aerial Spraying of Endosulfan on Glossina pallidipes (Austen) in the Lambwe Valley, Kenya
TLDR
Monthly post-spray monitoring showed that the population in thicket fully recovered in about 12 months, but to only 20–30% of its original level in woodland and plantation two years after spraying, indicating that density-dependent processes had re-established a regulatory effect.
