The IAEA and Food – Tsetse Fly Eradication – Senegal

International Atomic Energy Agency,  IAEA/FAO,  2017.

Senegal has successfully integrated the Sterile Insect Technique into its tsetse fly control project in the Niayes region. This nuclear technique suppresses or even eradicates insect pest by using radiation to sterilize primarily males. The disease that tsetse flies transmit can kill livestock or make them sick.
