Table 2 Mean abundance of malaria vectors caught per trap (per night) using different trapping methods during the study period (95% confidence intervals are given in brackets): CDC = CDC light trap used indoors, RB = an outdoor resting box, RC = a resting catch inside a house, RCA = a resting catch inside a cattle shed
