Contribution to the knowledge of ecodiversity and density of tsetse (Glossinidae) and other biting flies (Tabanidae and Stomoxyinae) in the fly controlled-infested livestock/wild life interface of the Adamawa plateau-Cameroon

This present study seeks to contribute to knowledge of eco diversity and density of trypanosomiasis vectors in Adamawa Plateau of Cameroon. Ten LaveissiƩre traps were pitched in Alme and Faro Game Reserve and checked 24 hours every 4 days from December 2014 to June 2015. An overall scanty catch of 240 flies were recorded due to presence of impregnated Deltamethrin screens. Based on interview of herders, they were aware of fly dense areas such as Faro Game Reserve. Flies mean densities and Shannon-Weaver indices were: Glossina morsitans submorsitans (0.55f/t and 0.23) with bimodal peaks in January and May, Glossina tachinoides (0.13f/t and 0.10), with bimodal peaks in January and March, Tabanus spp. (0.51f/t and 0.18) with a unimodal peak in June and Stomoxys spp (0.10f/t and 0.03) with a unimodal peak in the month of May. Fly infestation of formerly controlled areas is increasing, with major re-invasion sources from protected areas.
