  1. Note: ITN = insecticide-treated net (deltamethrin at 25 mg/m2); PPWI 1/3 = top third of the walls covered with woven polypropylene treated with bendiocarb at 200 mg/m2; PPWI total = walls completely covered with woven polypropylene treated with bendiocarb at 200 mg/m2. Values in the same row sharing the same superscript letter do not differ significantly (p > 0.05).
