Abstract
A search for cheap and practicable means of reclaiming* land from the tsetse-fly has continued for nearly twenty years in East Africa. Progress at first was slow, as a small body of field and laboratory worker, hampered by shortage of funds and staff, gradually reduced to order, the complex subject of various species of tsetse living under widely differing environmental conditions. From the very beginning practical reclamation formed a part of the programme, but in spite of increasing ability to reclaim, which has led to the freeing of about 1,000 square miles in Tanganyika Territory, t thousands of square miles on balance have been 10st to the Territory during those years.
