Impact of population movement and foraging behavior of Anopheles arabiensis


Summary

The two aims of this proposal are focused on the assessing the response of An. arabiensis to human- and ecologically-induced habitat changes. Specific Aim 1 will determine the effects of insecticide treated bed nets (ITNs) on foraging behavior and age structure of An. arabiensis, and the goal of Specific Aim 2 is to characterize population movement and community structure of An. arabiensis in the catchment region of the Macha Mission Hospital by examining the refugia hypothesis and micro-movement of mosquitoes within the transmission zone.
