Figure 5

Distribution of deltamethrin concentration on all collected nets, summarised by time group in potential use. Box plots show the median, 25th and 75th percentiles (box) and fifth and 95th percentiles (whiskers) for deltamethrin mg/m2 estimated by XRF. N = 189 for three to six month nets; N = 220 for 14-20 month nets; N = 200 for 26-32 month nets. The solid horizontal line shows minimum effective concentration at 10 mg/m2 and the dashed horizontal line shows optimum concentration at 25 mg/m2.
