Title: Tsetse control : the role of pathogens, parasites and predators (report of a Scientific Advisory Group convened at the Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, Canada, 25-29 March 1974)

Abstract: Tsetse control is required in Africa to reduce the incidence of trypanosomiases in man, and domestic animals which provide human food. Control of tsetse has so far been achieved through the use of insecticides but problems of resistance and environmental non-selectivity have stimulated the search for both alternative compounds and biological methods of control. Numerous species of parasites, pathogens and predators are being considered as suitable control agents of tsetse. Research is recommended towards the recognition and use of biological agents, their health and environmental safety as well as relevant aspects of tsetse ecology, physiology and behaviour, and mass production. It is recommended that the development of integrated control. (pest management), training programs be treated as a priority.
