Abstract
Fascioliasis is a global parasitic disease caused by trematodes of the genus Fasciola. These causative agents belong to two species of Fasciola, namely Fasciola gigantica and Fasciola hepatica. In Kenya both species are known to cause the disease, although Fasciola gigantica is regarded as the most important species. The mode of transmission of fascioliasis is well established, and practical tactics exist on how to arrest the biological cycle to prevent further transmission. However application of these tactics either singly or in an integrated form has not been effective in ridding off the cattle industry of this health problem.
