Analysis of entomological variables under controlled laboratory conditions. (A) Feeding intervals and observed gonotrophic cycle. The frequency of feeding was estimated from literature for An. maculipennis, An. culicifacies and An. stephensi: 36.5°C-days and 9.9°C of threshold temperature, 29.7°C-days and 12.6°C of threshold temperature, and 43.4°C-days and 8.9°C of threshold temperature [37], respectively. The duration of the gonotrophic cycle was estimated under controlled laboratory conditions for An. albimanus at several temperatures (see also mean value and 95% confidence intervals). (B) Average periods of time spent in the compartments L and PU, along with mean success for both larvae and pupae for An. albimanus. These variables are needed to estimate the proportion of larvae and pupae becoming non-viable. MTD1 and MTD2 represent the mean time delays from larva-1st instar to pupa and adult, respectively. MS1 and MS2 represent the mean successes from larva-1st instar to pupa and adult, respectively.
