Mosquito abundance generally declined over the years, with culicines
remaining dominant throughout the study period (Table 1).
Similar findings on relationships that were observed in Kindele for anophelines were also observed for culicines
in Kimbangu except that the number of Culex spp at Kimbangu did vary significantly between weeks (p = 0.

Species identification: Mosquitoes collected were identified to species and counted under the x50 magnification of a stereo-microscope using pictorial keys for culicines
(12), and anophelines (13).
Entomological survey: A total of 4,856 mosquitoes comprised of 15 species of anophelines and 11 species of culicines
were collected from human dwellings and cattlesheds in eight trap-nights.
