Abstract An area-wide integrated tsetse eradication project was initiated in Zanzibar in 1994 by the International Atomic Energy Agency and the governments of Tanzania and Zanzibar, to eradicate Glossina austeni Newstead from Unguja Island (Zanzibar) using the sterile insect technique. Suppression of the tsetse population on Unguja was initiated in 1988 by applying residual pyrethroids as a pour-on formulation to livestock and by the deployment of insecticide impregnated screens in some of the… 
Progress towards the eradication of Tsetse from the Loos islands, Guinea
TLDR
This 100% suppression is a promising step in the eradication process, but G. gambiensis may still occur at very low, undetectable, densities on the archipelago, but total eradication of the tsetse on Loos islands can be declared.
Irradiated Male Tsetse from a 40-Year-Old Colony Are Still Competitive in a Riparian Forest in Burkina Faso
TLDR
It is concluded that gamma sterilised male G. gambiensis derived from the CIRDES colony have a competitiveness that is comparable to their competitiveness obtained 35 years ago and can still be used for an area-wide integrated pest management campaign with a sterile insect component in Burkina Faso.
Optimized simulation of the control of tsetse flies Glossina pallidipes and G. m. morsitans (Diptera: Glossinidae) using odour-baited targets in Zimbabwe

TLDR
Trap catches of Glossina pallidipes Austen were modelled using a function combining logistic growth with diffusive movement and fits optimized with respect to population carrying capacities, rates of growth and movement, and to levels of imposed mortality, suggesting that the Zambian tsetse population is largely maintained by immigration.
Glossina hytrosavirus control strategies in tsetse fly factories: application of infectomics in virus management
TLDR
The aim of this PhD research was to investigate the functional and structural genomics and proteomics (infectomics) of GpSGHV as a prerequisite to development of rationally designed viral control strategies.
Survival and reproductive potential of gamma irradiated male Glossina pallidipes Austen
TLDR
In preparation for an SIT component of the G. pallidipes eradication project in the Southern Rift valley, Ethiopia, the effect of gamma irradiation on laboratory reared sexually mature male G. Pallidipes was studied and a sterilising dose identified.
A distribution model for Glossina brevipalpis and Glossina austeni in Southern Mozambique, Eswatini and South Africa for enhanced area-wide integrated pest management approaches
TLDR
The models indicated that cattle density, land surface temperature and protected areas, in relation with vegetation are the main factors contributing to the distribution of the two tsetse species in the area.
Field Competitiveness of Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) Irradiated Males in Pilot Sterile Insect Technique Trials in Northern Italy
TLDR
The field competitiveness of the released males was strongly negatively correlated with the ratio of sterile to wild males, which should be taken into consideration when designing future programs to suppress field populations of Aedes mosquitoes.
Field competitiveness of Aedes albopictus [Diptera: Culicidae] irradiated males in pilot Sterile Insect Technique trials in Northern Italy
TLDR
The field competitiveness of the released males was strongly negatively correlated with the ratio of sterile to wild males, which should be taken into consideration when designing future programmes to suppress field populations of Aedes mosquitoes.
Boosting the sterile insect technique with pyriproxyfen increases tsetse flies Glossina palpalis gambiensis sterilization in controlled conditions
TLDR
The results showed that the pyriproxyfen has no impact on the survival of sterile males, and a new approach combining SIT with the contamination of wild females by sterile males coated with biocides with promising results must be confirmed in the field.
Tsetse Salivary Gland Hypertrophy Virus: Hope or Hindrance for Tsetse Control?
TLDR
As a first step to identify suitable management strategies, the virus isolated from G. pallidipes (GpSGHV) was recently sequenced and research was initiated on virus transmission and pathology and preliminary attempts to silence the expression of an essential viral protein using RNA interference will be discussed.

An Evaluation of Insecticide-Impregnated Screens against Glossina Austeni (Diptera: Glossinidae) on Unguja Island of Zanzibar
TLDR
While effective control of G. austeni using blue cotton screens was shown to be feasible, it required a high deployment density and a long intervention period, and females were more influenced by the screens than males.
Integration of insect sterility and insecticides for control of Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood (Diptera: Glossinidae) in Tanzania. V. The impact of sequential releases of sterilised tsetse flies
TLDR
The released sterile insects were found to be highly competitive and to survive well in the field and to provide the nucleus of the 19% residual population subjected to the combined stress of population reduction by two applications of endosulfan aerosols and sequential releases of sterile males.
An Integrated Campaign Against Riverine Tsetse, Glossina palpalis gambiensis and Glossina tachinoides, by Trapping, and the Release of Sterile Males
The combination of a trapping system of insecticide impregnated screens and biconical traps followed by the release of sterile males led to the complete control of Glossina palpalis gambiensis and
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 eradication of Glossina palpalis palpalis (Robineau-Desvoidy) (Diptera: Glossinidae) using traps, insecticide-impregnated targets and the sterile insect technique in central Nigeria
TLDR
The integrated use of biconical traps, insecticide-impregnated targets and the sterile insect technique was developed for the eradication of Glossina palPalis palpalis (Robineau-Desvoidy) in a 1500-km 2 area of central Nigeria and the combined effect of removal trapping and sterile male release is expected to eradicate G. p.
Integration of insect sterility and insecticides for control of Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood (Diptera: Glossinidae) in Tanzania. I. Production of tsetse flies for release
TLDR
During the 15-month period of production in support of the field experiments, 1·3 million puparia were produced; 0·6 million of these pupariawere released at a production cost of $220 per thousand.
Comparative gamma-radiation sensitivity of Glossina tachinoides Westv., Glossina fuscipes fuscipes Newst. and Glossina brevipalpis Newst. (Diptera, Glossinidae).
TLDR
The higher proportion of dominant lethals in the sperm of the three species with increasing radiation doses was reflected in the reproductive status of the female mates, i.e. an increasing percentage of females showing imbalances between intrauterine content and ovarian development and an acceleration in follicle development associated with successive unsuccessful cycles.
