Table 3 Mean log ratios and corresponding geometric mean ratios of alternative mosquito collection methods (light traps, LTC and CO2-baited light traps, CB-LTC) against the reference method (human landing catches, HLC) for sampling Anopheles species in Edo Kontola, Ethiopia

From: Comparison of two adult mosquito sampling methods with human landing catches in south-central Ethiopia
