Table 3 The number of mosquitoes caught per trap in the presence (test period I, 20.00 – 20.45 hours) and absence (test period II, 21.30 – 22.15 hours) of host-seeking stimuli. Traps A, B and C were linked to tents occupied by persons P2, P6 and P5, respectively. n, the total number of mosquitoes trapped per test period also expressed (in parentheses) as a proportion of the total number of mosquitoes released.
