Location: Mosquito and Fly Research
Project Number: 6036-32000-049-01-T
Project Type: Trust Fund Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Dec 1, 2011
End Date: Nov 30, 2016
The objective of this cooperative project is to confirm efficacy of treated materials to kill stable flies over extended periods of time under laboratory and field conditions. Phase 2 objective is to confirm efficacy of treated materials to kill stable flies and prevent them from entering animal production units in the field.
Insecticide-treated fabrics will be bioassayed in the laboratory to obtain LT50s for each fabric type. Fabrics will be placed in the field around livestock research facilities in Ghana, Kenya, and other African countries for management of biting flies. Phase 2 - Insecticide-treated fabrics will be placed around tethered livestock in semi-field conditions and monitored for management of stable flies.
