Along the main water courses in the sparsely populated areas of the Sous-Préfecture of Tcholliré, the vectors of onchocerciasis were mainly Simulium damnosum s. str. and S. sirbanum, together with a small proportion of S. squamosum. Over a period of one to three years, vector biting rates were measured at 23 fly-catching sites in the vicinities of nine villages with different endemicities of onchocerciasis. Annual Biting Rates (ABR) on man were estimated as 26,100-83,800 fly-bites per man per… Expand
