Larval control and space spraying. Larval control and space spraying introduced to the baseline simulations from Figure 5, with larval habitat multipliers set to 3.0. a, c, e) Larval control on the left reduces adult vector populations and EIR, but does not affect sporozoite rate at these high EIRs as the age structure of the vector population is unaffected. b, d, f) Adult mortality affects all three measures, as it reduces the number of adult vectors, and dramatically changes the age structure so that fewer mosquitoes are old enough to have sporozoites. This creates a compounded effect on EIR.
