  1. Parasite development was calculated with two different published models [Paaijmans' equation ref. 12, Detinova's equation ref. 53] using the outdoor and indoor temperature data presented in Table 1. EIPout indicates parasite development derived from outdoor temperatures, EIPin indicates development derived from indoor temperatures and EIPin-out indicates the number of days difference in parasite development indoors compared with outdoors.
  2. No development: completion of parasites development takes longer than the upper limit for mosquito survival of 56 days [1]
  3. †† No development: temperature below lower threshold for P. falciparum development.
