<br/>The tsetse flies <em>Glossina pallidipes</em> Austen and <em>G. m. morsitans</em> Westw. (Diptera: Glossinidae) are obligatory blood feeding insects that do not live in close association with their hosts (mainly mammals). Tsetse flies are relatively long lived insects and have to take a blood meal regularly. Tsetse flies use smell and vision to find their hosts. In the last decade, many aspects of tsetse foraging and host-location behaviour have been elucidated. A range of kairomones has been identified. These kairomones can be used to which increase the number of tsetse caught with a trap or a target. However, some aspects of tsetse behaviour remained uncl...
