Table 2 Indoor biting rates, sporozoite rates and EIRs by species, location and year

From: Persistently high estimates of late night, indoor exposure to malaria vectors despite high coverage of insecticide treated nets

  An. gambiae s.l.* An. gambiae An. arabiensis An. funestus
  Asembo, 1985-88 Miwani, 1989-90 Asembo, 2011 Asembo, 2011 Miwani, 1989-90 Asembo, 2009 Asembo, 2011 Asembo, 1985-88 Miwani, 1989-90 Ahero, 1989-90 Asembo, 2009 Asembo, 2011
Biting rate 3.3 7.625 0.225 0.211 47.58 7.785 0.141 0.6 3.417 98.04 1.935 1.262
Sporozoite rate 0.131 0.060 0.100 0.097 0.011 0.005 0.042 0.049 0.043 0.043 0.005 0.082

  1. *For Asembo 2011, An. gambiae s.l. represents those mosquitoes that were morphologically identified as An. gambiae s.l. but could not be identified by PCR.
  2. Estimated from man biting rate observed at Saradidi as reported in Table 1 of Beier et al. [27].
  3. Daily biting rates were estimated by converting the total number of bites as reported by Githeko et al. [34] to nightly biting rates. Sporozoite rates presented are those reported by Githeko et al. [35] from the same villages and time period.
