Sampling comments: "Three survey points, with a minimum separation distance of 500 m, were selected... One tree was selected at each point... All data collection was carried out from April to July 2014, and mosquitoes were collected using human landing catches at ground and canopy height between 18:00 and 22:00 h. Four consecutive nights of collections were carried out in PF and VJR, and five nights in LF... The collectors, with the aid of a red torch-light, aspirated mosquitoes off their own legs"
