Abstract:
Background and Objective: The Dodéo plain is a bovine trypanosomosis foci, but no information exists on its vectors. The present survey aimed at studying the dynamics of vectors of trypanosomosis to fill the gap. Materials and Methods: Two sites were identified: an open grass savanna with the presence of a stream bordered by a gallery forest and the other consisted of trees and shrub savanna. In each site, a cattle pen was built and Nzi and Biconical traps pitched beside. Fly collection was carried out in four consecutive days of the collection months [October 2012 (end rainy season) to January 2013 (dry season)]. Results: Three genera of fly-vectors were captured with apparent trap densities: Glossina (0.25 f/td), Tabanus (1.09 f/td) and Stomoxys (5.59 f/td). Three species of tsetse flies (Glossina morsitans, Glossina fusca and Glossina nashi ), three species of tabanids (Tabanus taeniola, Tabanus biguttatus and Tabanus gratus ) and two species of stomoxyids (Stomoxys calcitrans and Stomoxys niger niger ) were identified. Only Tabanus differed significantly with capture sites. Populations of all the three genera showed significant difference between months. Conclusion: Three species of glossines, three species of tabanids and two species of Stomoxys were identified as vectors of trypanosomosis in the Dodéo plain.
