Arnoldia Vol 1(10) 1964 GRAHAM P. Destruction of birds and other wild life by Dieldrex spraying against Tsetse Fly in Bechuanaland. 1-4p

In 1963 the tsetse fly (Glossina moristans) had moved into areas of Acacia woodland in the Maun area. Elimination of these flies included spraying the area with Dieldrex followed with ring-barking all Acacia trees to render them unsuitable for further occupation by tsetse fly. This is a report of the birds and other wildlife that were destroyed as a result of this process.
