Controlling Tsetse Infestation

An alternative model: community based tsetse control Practical Action Eastern Africa and the Kenya Trypanosomiasis Research Institute (KETRI) have been engaged in a project to support community based tsetse control by use of trap technology in Kathekani area of Makueni district. Kathekani lies close to Tsavo National Park in the semi-arid region of eastern Kenya; it is typical of the shift from crop to livestock based livelihoods described above. The work has revealed that a dynamic community based programme based on strong community based institutions can achieve sustainable low cost tsetse control, with capacity to manufacture, maintain and repair the traps.
