Table 2 Mortality and blood feeding rates of Culex quinquefasciatus "Ladji" after 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

Cx. quinquefasciatus Control ITN ITN + PPWI 1/3 INT + PPWI total
Females caught 342 330 286 257
Females dead 2 48 77 121
Mortality (%) 0.6a [0-1.4] 14.6b [10.7-18.4] 26.9c [21.8-32.1] 47.1d [41.0-53.2]
Corrected mortality (%)   14.0a 26.4b 46.6c
Females blood fed 149 24 18 0
Blood feeding rate (%) 43.6a [38.3-48.8] 7.3b [4.5-10.1] 6.29b [3.5-9.1] 0c
Blood feeding inhibition (%) - 83.31 85.55 100
  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).
