Table 1 Mortality and blood feeding rates of Anopheles gambiae "Ladji" release-recapture in experimental huts (3 replicates)

From: Managing insecticide resistance in malaria vectors by combining carbamate-treated plastic wall sheeting and pyrethroid-treated bed nets

An. gambiae Control ITN ITN + PPWI 1/3 ITN + PPWI total
Females caught 206 227 193 202
Females dead 6 92 155 202
Mortality (%) 2.9a [0.6-5.2] 40.5b [34.1-46.9] 80.3c [74.7-85.9] 100d
Corrected mortality (%)   38.9a 79.7b 100c
Females blood fed 87 6 15 0
Blood feeding rate (%) 42.2a [35.5-49.0] 2.6b [0.6-4.7] 7.8c [4.0-11.6] 0b
Blood feeding inhibition (%) - 93.74 81.60 100
  1. Note: ITN = insecticide-treated net (deltamethrin at 25 mg/m2); PPWI 1/3 = top third of the walls covered with woven polypropylene treated with bendiocarb at 200 mg/m2; PPWI total = walls completely covered with woven polypropylene treated with bendiocarb at 200 mg/m2. Values in the same row sharing the same superscript letter do not differ significantly (p > 0.05).
