Populations of Simulium damnosum s.str. and S. sirbanum were examined for infections with filarial parasites during three years in the areas of Tcholliré and Touboro, at sites at different distances from Simulium breeding rivers, and in relation to villages with different endemicities of onchocerciasis. A total of 60,353 flies from 23 fly-catching sites were dissected. The overall infection rate was low, 11.8% of 35,357 parous flies dissected. 1681 flies (4.8% of the total parous) contained… CONTINUE READING
