The tsetse fly (Glossina spp) has been labelled ‘Africa’s scourge or bane’. It is the one pest largely preventing full utilisation of the best agricultural/grazing lands on the continent (Nash, 1969; Offori, 1981; Rogers and Randolph, 1988; Cattand, 1995). About one-third of the continent, or nearly 9 million lull’ is infested. The flies feed exclusively on vertebrate blood and are responsible for the transmission of protozoan parasites of the genus Trypanosoma, which cause human and animal trypanosomosis, otherwise referred to as sleeping sickness and nagana, respectively.
