OTHER VECTOR-BORNE DISEASES
This chapter contains information on diseases transmitted by flying insects other than sand flies or mosquitoes, ranging from biting insects like tabanids, tsetse flies and stable flies to non-biting secretophagous fruit flies. The number of diseases listed will be extended in the future.
Some of these insects can be significant pests themselves, sometimes causing direct economic losses in livestock due to their biting behaviour, and all of them are able to transmit important, sometimes even life-threatening pathogens.
