  • BackgroundHost choice and feeding success of sand fly vectors of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) are important factors in understanding the epidemiology and for developing efficient control strategies. The aim of the present study was to determine the host preference of Phlebotomus orientalis in the VL focus of Tahtay Adiyabo district, northern Ethiopia.MethodsTwo separate experiments were conducted testing attraction of P. orientalis to humans, domestic animals, and small wild animals. The host… CONTINUE READING
