Table 1 The mean percentage of gravid Anopheles gambiae s.s. attracted to the test cage in the WHO-tube bioassays and to the test compartment in the airflow olfactometer bioassays

From: Water vapour is a pre-oviposition attractant for the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto

Experimental treatment Mean percentage (%) in test (95% CI)* Odds ratio (95% CI) p
Response towards high humidity cage (test) in WHO-tube bioassays at 21.30
Non-fed females 50 (38-62) 1  
Gravid females 71 (59-81) 2.4 (1.3-4.7) 0.018
Airflow olfactometer bioassays with gravid An. gambiae s.s. in three experimental treatments
Wet (control) vs. wet (test) 56 (48-64) 1  
Dry (control) vs. dry (test) 50 (29-71) 0.8 (0.3-1.9) 0.598
Dry (control) vs. wet (test) 93 (88-96) 10.6 (5.4-20.8) < 0.001
