Epidemiological indices. Palm-House Efficiency (PHE) as a proxy for palm-house proximity an its relation with the proportion of visited houses (PVH) and the average number of insects visiting a house (VI). Additionally, we include two relevant network metrics: the number of clusters (NC: red) and the proportion of patches in the biggest cluster (PPBC: blue). The shadows of the output reflect the standard deviation among simulations for each PHE. PVH and VI show a saturation effect; however a PPBC increments linearly as PHE increases. Our study village has a PHE of 0.76 with an average of 3 individuals per day per house and 93% of the houses visited by triatomine bugs
