This paper describes the seasonal activity of the different vectors, human biting indices, sporozoite rates and the entomological inoculation rate in a low-lying rural area in southern Malawi.
Background
Although malaria is highly prevalent throughout Malawi, little is known of its transmission dynamics. This paper describes the seasonal activity of the different vectors, human biting indices, sporozoite rates and the entomological inoculation rate in a low-lying rural area in southern Malawi.
Methods

Any vector control strategy intending to significantly reduce the malaria burden in the palm estate will have to take into account entomological heterogeneity in addition to ecological and socio-economic multiplicity.
