Table 3 Total mosquitoes that entered untreated huts that previously had insecticides (experimental nights; n = 12)

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

Treatment N Median IQR RR 95% CI z value p value
No insecticide 1054 47.0 22.0 – 110.3 45.0 [23.1, 87.8] 11.168 NA

  1. Legend: This table illustrates indoor mosquito densities in huts that previously had coils and DDT. The mosquitoes were collected during the wash period when the huts had no insecticides.
  2. N = Total number of mosquitoes; Median = Number of mosquitoes per hut per night; IQR – Interquartile range; RR – Relative rate CI = Confidence intervals.
