What other types of fly are caught by tsetse traps?
Tsetse traps also catch large numbers of:-
- Stable flies
- Horse flies
- Non-biting muscids
These are all pests of livestock. Some of them transmit diseases - Stomoxys transmits gall sickness for instance - and all of them are nuisance pests. However, traps and targets do not kill these species in sufficient numbers to have a significant effect on their numbers.
