Ever since the quelea became an economically important pest of cereal crops, many control measures have been used and dropped as they proved ineffective with time. Aerial spraying of quelea concentrations is hitherto the only practical means of control. Spraying operations are done together with a ground supporting team which seeks out que lea concentrations, maps their locations, and moves chemical and solvent to required areas. Aerial spraying for Q.quelea suffers from constraints which often impair its success.
