Table 1 Williams mean (Mw) catch (95 % CI) and maximum number caught in a single trap of An. funestus (s.l.) and An. gambiae (s.l.) by season. Collections were made from CDC miniature light traps from May 2012 to April 2014 in Nchelenge district, Zambia, and presented by season (Dry: May to October, Rainy: November to April). Catches are summarized from all longitudinal and cross-sectional study households

  1. All Mw catches of An. gambiae (s.l.) were significantly lower than those of An. funestus (s.l.) within each season
