  1. The SE and the differences (Chi-square and p-value) between trap types are calculated with respect to the predicted mean difference. Ratio is calculated dividing the predicted mean value of the first method per the second method.
  2. SRB-IN Sticky resting box indoors, SRB-OUT Sticky resting box outdoors, BP Back Pack aspirators indoors, PIT Pit shelters outdoors.
