Abstract

This guide to the sequential application of low dosage aerosols for the control of tsetse flies refers primarily to the use at night of small, fixed wing aircraft e.g. Piper Aztec, Beech craft Baron, Cessna 401 (cover photo) etc.. It does not cover operations using larger aircraft such as the Dakota DC3 or those confined to daylight spraying, unless specific reference is made. The potential role of helicopters in tsetse control is recognised and although encouraging preliminary work has been carried out this will not be covered in any detail in this manual. The procedures described below are based largely on experiences within an EEC project in southern Africa. They do, however, apply to tsetse control throughout Africa and where techniques are considered country specific this is mentioned in the text. The manual refers mainly to operations controlled by central government, with flying activities contracted out to commercial operators.
