Sampling comments: "Mosquitoes larvae and adults breeding habitats in the irrigated millet and guinea corn fields were observed on weekly basis, from May to December 2007. Irrigation ditches, bed-pools, puddles, and hoof-prints were also observed from April 2007 to January 2008. Mosquito larvae observed in bed-pools and puddles were collected using ladles; those in hoof-prints were scooped with plastic spoons and those in ditches were sampled with well nets. Subsequent collections of the available larvae were made into sampling vials with rubber stoppers... Adult mosquitoes were sampled by hanging a black clothe, coated with hair cream... on scarecrows that acted as effective attractant... Adult mosquitoes... were collected... using a 20cm diameter well net sampler"
