Table 1 Summary statistics for nets treated with Pyrimiphos-methyl (PM 150 mg/m2), DEET and KBR (both at 10 g/m2), alone and in combination against susceptible An. gambiae. Slope (95% CI), Lethal Time for 50 and 95% (LT50–95 in days), Biting Inhibition Time 50 and 95% (BIT50–95 in days).

From: Synergy between repellents and non-pyrethroid insecticides strongly extends the efficacy of treated nets against Anopheles gambiae
