Abstract
The objective of this work was to evaluate the diversity and composition of glossines, tabanids and stomoxes in the dry and rainy seasons at the Douala-Edéa Game Reserve (DEGR) using Biconical, Vavoua and Nzi traps. Three traps i.e. one of each type was pitched in the sampled sites with collection carried out three days per month from January to May 2017. A total of 1028 flies were caught among which 49.61% of them belonged to the family Stomoxyidae, Tabanidae (34.63%) and Glossinidae (15.76%). Fourteen species were caught and grouped under the following genera: Glossina (02), Stomoxys (04), but Tabanidae was represented by three genera: Tabanus consisting of three species, Chrysops (03) and Haematopota (2) with the genus Tabanus highly represented. Glossina, Stomoxys and Chrysops were abundant in the rainy season while Tabanus and Haematopota were abundant in the dry season. 50.88% of the catches were from the Vavoua trap, followed by Nzi (39.3%) and Biconical (9.2%).
