Table 4 Comparison of the mean catch per trap per night for each of the three abdominal status of each mosquito species collected by the three CFG traps used in comparative studies using counterflow geometry traps in Lwanda Nyamasari village.

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

   Anopheles gambiae Anopheles funestus Culicines

  1. Sum of each mosquito species in each trap is also shown with the percentage in parenthesis.
  2. MC, counterflow geometry trap baited with milk cream; LC, counterflow geometry trap baited with Limburger cheese; NB, counterflow geometry trap with no bait. N represents the number of days. The percentages are calculated for each mosquito species. For example the counterflow geometry trap baited with milk cream collected 36% of all the An. gambiae s.l, collected by the three traps while, the counterflow geometry trap baited with Limburger cheese collected 64% of all the same.
  3. Values following each other in the same column with different letter superscripts are significantly different at (P = 0.05).
