Abstract
It is well known that clearing land of its bush and tree growth, providing the cleared areas are sufficiently large, is an effective means of controlling the various species of the tsetse-fly (Glossina spp.). In Tanganyika Territory, in particular, very considerable areas of land have been cleared of bush for this purpose, with tribal turn-outs of labour amounting to tens of thousands of men. In Singida district alone some 25,000 men for ten days each have been used for many years on anti-tsetse clearings.
