As to collect both endophagous and exophagous Anopheles vectors that sought human blood meals, the outdoor collection was performed within a premise of 10-meter distance from the indoor collection.
The principal outcomes of this study were analyzed to explore Anopheles species composition, abundance, and blood-feeding behaviors and to see whether the IRS using BT currently available for the vector control could reduce the density of endophagous versus exophagous Anopheles vector populations.
For instance, there were more exophagous versus endophagous vector populations: An.
There was a significant difference in the abundance of exophagous versus endophagous population samples of An.
However, there was no significant difference in the abundance (neither mean density nor human landing rate) of exophagous versus endophagous An.
