To monitor malaria transmission, effective sampling methods for host seeking vectors are necessary. The suitability of these methods can be determined by field measurements of their trapping efficiencies. We compared the efficiencies of the Human Landing Catch (HLC), the Centers for Disease Control light trap (CDC-LT) placed next to occupied bednets and the Mbita trap for sampling Anopheles gambiae s.l and Anopheles funestus. The sampling methods were rotated through three houses, each with a… CONTINUE READING
