Pictorial illustration of the eave ribbons and their installation along the eave-spaces of the experimental huts (a). In the current trials the eave ribbons were designed in lengths of either 1 m or 1.5 m, so multiple pieces were used to cover the entire eave space of the huts (b). However, the ribbons could be designed and manufactured with longer lengths, then cut to fit specific house sizes. The ribbons are fitted such that they do not completely cover the eave space, but also without directly touching the experimental hut surfaces, to avoid any contamination (b). During the tests, both the two experimental huts in the chamber were either fitted with or not fitted with the eave ribbons. At the end of each set of tests, the chambers were left free for at least 2 days and two nights to prevent residual effects of the treatments. Photographs by Emmanuel Mwanga
