  1. *NS by Fisher Exact test. Chi-square not calculated due to an expected cell frequency below 5.
  2. OR, odds ratio of human/bovine blood meal by Folonzo versus Kiribina; CI, confidence interval; ISC, insecticide spray-sheet catch; PIT, Muirhead-Thomson pit-shelter[30]; Mixed, blood meal of human and bovine origin; HBI, human blood index.
