An evaluation of this work in 1996 showed that the Tsetse fly is no longer a problem on Ungaja, the main island of Zanzibar, Tanzania. The Tsetse fly causes the transmission of a parasitic disease, trypanosomiasis, which slowly destroys livestock herds, in sub-Saharan Africa. It also causes the spread of the human form of the disease, known as sleeping sickness. By irradiating male Tsetse flies in a controlled gamma ray environment, the male flies are made sterile, and the Tsetse fly population can be reduced to insignificant levels.
