This paper describes the results of experimental hut trials to investigate the efficacy of a variety of insecticide-treated nets. The local vector population is partially resistant to multiple pyrethroid insecticides and so the rational behind the study was to determine whether the nets were still effective against resistant mosquitoes.

Despite their importance as malaria vectors, little is known of the bionomic of Anopheles nili and Anopheles moucheti. Larval collections from 24 sites situated along the dense hydrographic network of south Cameroon were examined to assess key ecological factors associated with these mosquitoes distribution in river networks.
