The use of the sterile insect technique for the control or eradication of tsetse flies is progressing towards the first large scale programmes on mainland Africa. To enable these programmes, the rearing of tsetse flies has to be much expanded and with the expansion, issues of quality control become more important. This publication provides an analysis of several aspects of quality in tsetse fly production and expands or enhances many of the current quality control procedures.
