Table 2 Comparison of parity rates of dissected mosquitoes for the four trapping methods used in the investigations at Lwanda Nyamasari village.

From: Trapping mosquitoes using milk products as odour baits in western Kenya

  Anopheles arabiensis    Anopheles gambiae    Anopheles funestus   
Method Parous % Nulli Parous, % Not dissected, % Sum Parous, % Nulli Parous,% Not dissected, % Sum Parous,% Nulli Parous, % Not dissected % sum
CFG 80% 0% 20% 10 69% 19% 12% 16 66% 30% 4% 44
CDC 66% 15% 19% 59 63% 15% 22% 40 48% 15% 37% 89
ET 0% 67% 33% 3 50% 0% 50% 2 0% 0% 0% 0
MLC 49% 19% 33% 43 60% 17% 23% 52 55% 18% 27% 57
  1. CFG, counterflow geometry trap baited with Limburger cheese; CDC, standard centers for disease control light trap; ET, entry trap; MLC, man landing catches; The percentages are calculated for each mosquitoes species per trap. For example, of all the An. arabiensis mosquitoes collected by the CFG trap, 80% were parous while of all the An. arabiensis mosquitoes collected by the CDC light trap 66% were parous.
