Sample size: 2271
Years: 2004 - 2006
Days: 70
Sampling comments: "Sampling was performed every two months for five consecutive days between February 2004-April 2006" (i.e., on 14 occasions) with apparent hand collection of "mosquitoes resting on vegetation and any specimen that was likely to have been attracted by the presence of humans. For the night collections, Shannon traps (Forattini 2002) with a 100-watt universal light were used and insects were captured while resting on the walls. Samplings were also performed using traps (Lard Can Trap) with animal bait (Gallus g. domesticus). The traps were installed at the tops of trees, about 7 m above ground level"
