In the absence of the nuisance of mosquitoes biting, people tend to cease using bed nets because of an erroneous assumption that very low anopheline
populations would not pose a significant risk of malaria (Pulford et al.

This decrease in temperature coincided with the first decrease in vector density; another possible reason for the decrease was pyrethrum spray catch testing of anopheline
vectors conducted by our team, which started in April 2003.

Irrigated farming has the greatest potential to create additional breeding sites, and irrigated, open-spaced vegetable farming has been linked to higher anopheline
densities in Kumasi, Ghana (4).
One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to compare the changes in the indoor resting catches of anophelines
between village groups during pre-treatment and post-treatment periods.
Because of its close proximity to Africa, Spain is one of the European countries most susceptible to the traffic of sub-Saharan migrant workers and the risk for transmission by mosquitoes migrating from other countries or indigenous anophelines
infected by gametogenic hosts has increased substantially.
