Abstract

Studies on breeding sites of Phlebotomus duboscqi, a vector of Leishmania major, were intensified in Marigat, Baringo District, Kenya using the soil incubation technique, following the previously successful attempt to look for sandfly breeding sites. Soil samples obtained from nest areas of the animal burrows yielded Phlebotomus duboscqi and Sergentomyia ingrami. These two species had been shown to harbour L. major parasites inside animal burrows. Other phlebotomine sandflies recovered from these same breeding sites included P. martini, P. rhodhaini, S. bedfordi, S. africanus, S. antennatus and S. graingeri

Résumé

Des études sur les sites d'élevage de Phlebotomus duboscqi, le vecteur de Leishmania major étaient conduites à Marigat. District de Baringo, en utilisant la technique d'incubation. Des énchantillons de sol obtenus des nichoirs dans les terriers d'animaux ont produit Phlebotomus duboscqi et Sergentomyia ingrami. Il a été montré que les deux ébergent des parasites de L. major à l'intérieur des terriers d'animaux. D'autres phlebotomes trouvés dans les sites de reproduction comprenaient P. rodhaini, P. martini, S. antennatus, S. schwetzi, S. africanus, S. bedfordi et 5. graingeri.
