From: Most outdoor malaria transmission by behaviourally-resistant Anopheles arabiensis is mediated by mosquitoes that have previously been inside houses

The influence of varying levels of cattle availability and baseline distribution of human biting exposure indoors and outdoors upon the predicted proportions of all mosquitoes successfully obtaining a blood meal which had previously entered but then left a house unfed in a single feeding cycle (a) or the minimum number of feeding cycles required to acquire and transmit Plasmodium falciparum malaria (b). The predictions presented are based on simulations assuming a setting with high bed net usage (Ω = N) and vector mosquitoes have the same ability as Anopheles arabiensis to avoid fatal contact with LLINs or IRS after entering houses [1619], so that the insecticide treatment status of the net is irrelevant
