Background /Introduction Malaria control is mainly based on indoor residual spraying and insecticide-treated bed nets. The efficacy of these tools depends on the feeding behaviour of mosquitoes. Objective The cross sectional study aimed at determining the biting patterns and entomological inoculation rate in Anopheles gambiae s.l in areas with and areas without insecticide resistance in Teso sub-counties, western Kenya. Materials & Methods Mosquito larvae sampled using a dipper were reared in… Expand
