  1. ♣ The percentages are calculated on the basis of the total number of mosquitoes caught by any particular trap. For example in the case of the OBS, 26.2% of all the mosquitoes caught were An. arabiensis, while in the case of the MMX®, only 3.7% of all the mosquitoes caught in the trap were An. arabiensis.
