Allan Lloyd makes some pretty good points, most of which Alga responded to.

I read this as Pajarocu, because they were staging the trap with the lander, 
had a truce with the inhumi -- the inhumi wouldn't bite them because the 
humans allowed them to load up a lander full of meat/slaves for the home 
planet.  If the inhumi started attacking people in Pajarocu, they might get 
scared off and/or warn other people.
