Abstract The bionomics of anopheline vectors were analysed in randomly selected centres, representing fixed and spot-check stations. Three anopheline species were found. Anopheles arabiensis was the most prevalent species (84.2\%) with a sporozoite rate of 0.7\%, followed by A. culicifacies adenensis (14.9\%) and A. rhodesiensis rupicolus (0.9\%). Maximum indoor resting density was recorded during March, July and August. Positive sprayed sites for females were higher in bedrooms (40.4\%) than animal sheds (26.9\%). A total of 2560 anopheline larvae were collected of which 79.5\% were A. arabiensis, 19.4\% were A. culicifacies adenensis and 1.1\% A. rhodesiensis rupicolus. A. arabiensis was assumed to be the most efficient malaria vector based on epidemiological evidence and the finding of natural sporozoite infected females.
