The environmental changes including land use and climatic variability have great impact on malaria transmission.8 Increased deforestation, agriculture expansion, rapid growth of population and urbanisation may increase the proliferation of malaria vector breeding sites.9 The effect of climatic variability on malaria transmission has been detected in the eastern and western highlands of Africa.4,5Agriculture activities often need moist, disturbed environments that consist of both larval and adult mosquitoes.9 Urban farming is sustained by water storage and irrigation, thereby increasing the availability of mosquito-breeding sites.6 Many Anopheles species have been reported from the habitats in agricultural area in the highlands.7
