  1. aMosquitoes were collected at each of the three study sites by a total of 120 human-nights.
  2. HBR: Human-biting rates expressed in bites per man per night (b/h/n); NoCSP: Number of female Anopheles mosquitoes examined for the presence of circum-sporozoite protein (CSP); PR: Parous rate ± 95% confidence interval; NoDEO: Number of female Anopheles specimens whose ovaries were dissected and examined; NoCOL: Number of female Anopheles mosquitoes collected.
