Table 1 Parameter estimates for basic sugar-feeding model

From: Quantifying the mosquito’s sweet tooth: modelling the effectiveness of attractive toxic sugar baits (ATSB) for malaria vector control

Parameter: Prior distribution (per day): Posterior estimate with 95% credible interval (per day):
Female ASB-feeding rate (control): sf,C Uniform (0,10) 0.15 (0.12 - 0.19)
Female ATSB-feeding rate (experiment): sf,E Uniform (0,10) 0.50 (0.27 - 0.97)
Male ASB-feeding rate (control): sm,C Uniform (0,10) 0.15 (0.12 – 0.19)
Male ATSB-feeding rate (experiment): sm,E Uniform (0,10) 0.46 (0.27 – 0.84)
Female death rate, μ f Normal (0.1,0.01) 0.094 (0.075-0.115)
Male death rate, μ m Normal (0.1,0.01) 0.094 (0.076-0.113)
Female ATSB death rate: μ f ,ATSB Uniform (0,100) 11.7 (6.3 - 22.6)
Male ATSB death rate: μ m ,ATSB Uniform (0,100) 11.0 (6.1 - 20.3)
