    Abstract

    Epidemiological studies undertaken in an area of low altitude in Burundi, revealed microgeographic variations of malaria endemicity, naturally unstable in the area. However transmission is relatively high near rice fields. The transmission increases at the end of the rainy season, period of natural decrease of the vector population combined with an increase of their longevity. Indoor spraying with short acting insecticides during that period of the year, reduced considerably the transmission and high parasitaemia in children, without changing the susceptibility of the vector to the insecticide
