AvecNet WP 3: New tools for monitoring heterogeneities in vector species composition and behavior

Most existing front line vector control interventions focus on mosquitoes that bite and rest inside house. The importance of mosquito populations with alternative behaviour in malaria transmission remains relatively unexploited partly due to the lack of suitable monitoring tools. This project aimed at developing safe and effective means of characterizing human exposure to mosquitos’ bites and their pathogens at different time of the night and across indoor and outdoor locations. The validated novel tools will be used to monitor for changes in species composition and behaviours in response to urbanization and increasing coverage with LLINs
