Illustration of the experimental setup used to assess protective efficacy of the transfluthrin-treated eave ribbons inside the semi-field chamber. Two volunteers (one volunteer/hut) conducted HLC outdoors from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and thereafter moved inside the huts to sleep under untreated bed-net from 10 p.m. to 6.30 a.m., during which CDC-light traps were used to collect mosquitoes indoors in each hut. In the treatment setup, the huts were fitted with either untreated eave ribbons, or eave ribbons treated with 5%, 1.5%, 0.2% or 0.02% transfluthrin. Each concentration was tested individually for a total of 15 nights, with 2 days of resting before the next concentration was tested. Mosquito collections were done using similar approaches in controls and treatment days
