Monthly mosquito collections were carried out from 06.00 p.m. to 06.00 a.m. when landing on human beings... Two consecutive nights of mosquito collections were carried out per village and per month, in four houses, with four mosquito collectors (two inside and two outside houses) per night. Consequently, a total of 16 human-nights were performed per month in each village and the total of human-nights was 1, 384 for the whole study... Endophilic resting mosquitoes were collected mornings from 10 bedrooms per village and per month... Mosquitoes killed or simply stunned by the effect of insecticide fell on white sheets... The total of bedroom-nights was 660 for the whole study"
