Table 2 Parameter estimates for sugar-feeding model incorporating gonotrophic cycles

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):
ASB-feeding rate (0–2 gonotrophic cycles, control): sA,C Uniform (0,10) 0.25 (0.18 - 0.31)
ASB-feeding rate (3 or more gonotrophic cycles, control): sB,C Uniform (0,10) 0.035 (0.009 – 0.076)
ATSB-feeding rate (0–2 gonotrophic cycles, experiment): sA,E Uniform (0,10) 0.84 (0.53 – 1.21)
ATSB-feeding rate (3 or more gonotrophic cycles, experiment): sB,E Uniform (0,10) 0.12 (0.03 – 0.27)
Female death rate, μ f Normal (0.1,0.01) 0.094 (0.081-0.110)
Female ATSB death rate: μ f ,ATSB Uniform (0,100) 12.2 (7.5 – 23.9)
Reciprocal of gonotrophic cycle length: δ Normal (0.33,0.03) 0.34 (0.30-0.39)
