Abstract
Owing to the very slow rate of reproduction of tsetse flies, the large-scale rearing of these insects under laboratory conditions will depend upon the development of an extremely efficient breeding technique. The discovery of such a technique would greatly facilitate research on the insect itself, on cyclically transmitted trypanosomes, and on the diseases which they give rise to in man and domestic animals. It would also enable such research to be undertaken in any part of the world; preliminary studies on the control of tsetse flies by insecticides and chemosterilants would no longer have to be confined to Africa.
