  1. Anopheles stephensi mosquitoes were blood fed one time on either treated or untreated blood. Anopheles albimanus mosquitoes were blood fed twice; once on untreated blood and again, 2 days later, on either treated or untreated blood. Engorged mosquitoes were held individually in oviposition vials. Superscripts indicate statistically significant differences for parameters within a species
