Table 3 Total number of mosquitoes that had sugar fed (partially and fully engorged) and their mean proportions

From: The development of an ivermectin-based attractive toxic sugar bait (ATSB) to target Anopheles arabiensis

  N T sugar fed MPM sugar fed 95% CI-prop fed T engorged T partial sugar fed M prop fully engorged 95% CI prop engorged P value
Indoors 16 423 0.32 [0.28–0.37] 110 313 0.26 [0.21–0.31] 0.001**
Outdoors near hut 16 226 0.15 [0.1–0.19] 50 176 0.23 [0.17–0.30] 0.001**
Near-by vegetation 16 680 0.51 [0.4–0.55] 108 572 0.16 [0.13–0.19] 0.001***
  1. Statistically significant at * p < 0.05, ** p < 0.01,*** p < 0.001
  2. The mean proportion of sugar-fed mosquitoes, 95% confidence intervals and P value were derived from a logistic regression model analysing differences in proportion of sugar-engorged mosquitoes fed from three different types of deployment sites: indoors, outdoors close to the hut and outdoors close to vegetation
  3. N number of replicates, T sugar fed total number of recaptured mosquitoes that had taken any type of sugar meal, MPM sugar fed mean proportion of sugar fed mosquitoes (excluding unfed), 95% CI prop fed 95% confidence interval of mean proportion of sugar fed mosquitoes (excluding unfed), T engorged total number of recaptured mosquitoes fully engorged with sugar, T partial sugar fed total number of recaptured mosquitoes partially sugar fed, M prop mosq engorged mean proportion of mosquitoes fully engorged with sugar of the mosquitoes that sugar fed (Prop mosq engorged = T sugar fed/T engorged); 95% CI-prop engorged 95% confidence interval of mean proportion of mosquitoes fully engorged with sugar
