Ethics approval and consent to participate
: This study was part of a project which aimed to characterize entomologically several villages in Burkina Faso to understand local variation in mosquito species diversity and the seasonal dynamic of their abundance. The project received approval from the local institutional ethics committee (Centre Muraz Institutional Ethics Committee), reference number 009-2012/CE-CM. All collectors, including those participating in HLC, received appropriate information, were given appropriate supervision and gave their prior informed consent to participate to the study. All HLC volunteers were tested for malaria before and after the study periods. Only malaria-safe individuals were admitted for HLC sampling and malaria treatments were available to all in case of infection (though none were recorded).
