  1. The annual entomological inoculation rates is estimated from the mean nightly man biting rate multiplied by 365 and the sporozoite rate 0.65%
  2. MBR = man biting rate; EIR = annual entomological inoculation rate; UA = community near urban agriculture; U = community far from urban agriculture. Data were analysed based upon a log10(n+1) transformation.
