  1. Note: Four traps were used for the collection each night in all seven sites. Figures represent total number of Culicoides of each species collected during: 3 nights using 4 traps in Bikoki, Bokwai, Ebam and Mbule; 6 nights and 4 traps in Ediki and 2 nights 4 traps in Nlog while figures in parentheses represent the number of Culicoides per trap per night (fly/trap/night) for each species in the various sites
  2. Abbreviations: n, number of night-traps
