Egg-laying responses of Anopheles gambiae s.s. tested individually to Bermuda grass hay infusion and key organic volatiles of the infusion and the mean number of eggs laid per individual female tested. The bar chart shows the mean proportion of eggs laid in control and test substrates in choice egg-count bioassays, error bars show the 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CI). The odds ratios, including their 95 % CI and P values present the output of the statistical analysis based on generalized linear models. The experiments with tap water in both the control and test cup serve as reference based on the underlying assumption that gravid females lay an approximately equal proportion of eggs (1:1) in either test or control cup if both contain the same choice. The analysis aims to detect a statistically significant deviation from the reference distribution
