Table 5 Best-fit generalized mixed effects model (binomial) of variables that influenced blood digestion

From: Fipronil and ivermectin treatment of cattle reduced the survival and ovarian development of field-collected Anopheles albimanus in a pilot trial conducted in northern Belize

Fixed effects Groups Estimate SE p-value Odds ratio (95% CI)
Intercept   2.181 0.486 < 0.0001 8.852 (7.900, 9.804)
Treatment Control (n = 196)
Fipronil (n = 185) 1.595 1.100 0.147 3.781 (2.772, 7.085)
Ivermectin (n = 91) − 1.661 0.534 0.0019 0.201 (− 0.856, 1.236)
Day after treatment   0.114 0.053 0.0318 1.121 (1.017, 1.225)
  1. Model: BMneg ~ Treatment + DayAfterTreatment + (1|CowID) where the fixed effects were ‘Treatment’ (n = total number of mosquitoes dissected per treatment group) and ‘Day After Treatment’. The random effect was ‘CowID’ (i.e., the six individual heifers)
