Abstract
The study was conducted in Chelo settlement area of Didesa district to estimate prevalence of the parasite (Trypanosomosis) and identify Tsetse fly species involved. Out of the total of 384 local breeds of cattle examined, 27 animals were found positive for trypanosomosis. The overall trypanosomosis prevalence was 7.03% which is composed of (n=5) 1.3%, (n=11) 2.87%, (n=7) 1.82% and (n=4) 1.04% in Doyo, Chelo, Cheti and Other area respectively was recorded and peak prevalence was observed in Chelo (n=11) 2.87%. A total of 2551 tsetse and other biting flies were caught during the study period. Out of these, Glossina accounts n=2333 (91.45%) and other biting flies includes n=218 (9.34%). The apparent fly density was found to be Flay/Trap/Day (FTD)=13.89 for Glossina species with the only identified species was Glossina tachinoides and Flay/Trap/Day (FTD)=1.23 was accounted for other biting flies. Finally, despite the continued interventions were applied on tsetse and trypanosomosis control in the study area, significant numbers of Glossina tachinoides were caught FTD=13.89 with 7.03% of overall prevalence of trypanosomosis.
