Abstract: The efficiency of the NITSE trap to catch dipteram insects was tested in the Amurum Forest, Jos-east Plateau State, Nigeria during the mid-wet season (2nd July-30th September) of 2004. Five non-baited NITSE traps were positioned randomly along water bodies in the study site. The NITSE trap was highly effective in trapping dipteran files such as Stomoxys calcitrans 3.227 (50.1%). Haematopota pluvialis 1,062 (16.5%) Chrysops sp. 544 (8.5%). Tabanus sp. 845 (13.1%) and Musca sp. 760 (11.8%). Females of H. pluvialis and S. calcitrans also showed great susceptibility to trap. The high catches suggest that NITSE trap can be used for practical fly control in isolated setting at a relatively low cost. The results were discussed in relation to veterinary and medical importance to livestock and humans respectively in the forest, as well as its ecological significance.
