Table 10 The proportion of eggs laid by mosquitoes collected from experimental huts

From: An experimental hut study to quantify the effect of DDT and airborne pyrethroids on entomological parameters of malaria transmission

Treatment Total number of eggs Median IQR RR [95% CI] z value p value

  1. Blood fed mosquitoes collected from huts that had mosquito coils, DDT and no insecticides were kept in individual oviposition tubes and the number of eggs laid was compare between mosquitoes that had been collected from huts that had different insecticides.
  2. Legend: Median – Total mosquitoes caught per hut; IQR – Interquartile range; RR – Relative rate; CI – Confidence intervals.
