Anopheles arabiensis, the primary vector of Plasmodium falciparum in Macha, Zambia, is known to display varying degrees of exophilic and exophagic behavior. The extent of these behaviors was evaluated with paired indoor/outdoor human landing catches (HLCs) and outdoor cattlebaited collections. Results concur with previous studies that An. arabiensi...

The most important factor for effective zooprophylaxis in reducing malaria transmission is a predominant population of a strongly zoophilic mosquito, Anopheles arabiensis. The feeding preference behaviour of Anopheline mosquitoes was evaluated in odour-baited entry trap (OBET). Mosquitoes were captured daily using odour-baited entry traps, light tr...

INTRODUCTION Environmental and social factors such as land cover, availability of breeding sites, population density, type of households, control interventions, etc., determine the distribution of malaria vectors influencing malaria transmission. By geoprocessing a combination of field data and remote sensing information, we developed high-resoluti...
