To date, 44 species and subspecies of anopheline mosquitoes have been documented in Ethiopia, with the predominant malaria type being Anopheles arabiensis
Research into the breeding habits of one of the mosquitoes that spreads malaria in the region - the Anopheles arabiensis
- shows that it feeds on humans as well as livestock.

is mediated by mosquitoes that have previously been inside houses.
