Problem

Tsetse flies as pests

Incidence:

The tsetse fly which transmits nagana to cattle, is found in approximately 11 million sq km in Africa. Of this area, 7 million sq km could support a population of 140 million cattle, if cleared of the tsetse. Only 20 million cattle are currently in this area. The potential meat production would be equal to an additional 1.5 million tonnes per year.
