Human and An. arabiensis data were combined to derive human adjusted biting rates for ITN unprotected and protected individuals. (A) Behaviour-adjusted biting rates per person per hour for an unprotected individual are presented. The percentage of vector bites occurring indoors for unprotected individuals is 75 %, and the percentage of bites occurring while asleep indoors for an unprotected individual is 54 %. (B) Behaviour-adjusted estimates of An. arabiensis bites per hour per person in the study areas if ITNs were used, using the typical start and end times shown in the study area. The percentage of vector bites that would be prevented by using an ITN is 51 %. Approach and calculations derived from Monroe et al., 2020 [20]
