Table 1 Total and mean ± SE number of female An. gambiae attracted in a dual-choice bioassay by blend IB1 dispensed from nylon (reference treatment) versus candidate odour-dispensing substrates (polyester, cotton and cellulose + polyacrylate material) within a screen-walled greenhouse

From: Evaluation of textile substrates for dispensing synthetic attractants for malaria mosquitoes

Candidate substrate N n Mean ± SE mosquitoes caught  
Nylon Candidate substrate P-value
Polyester 4 474 42.8 ± 3.3 75.8 ± 4.4 0.001
Cotton 4 434 43.0 ± 3.3 65.5 ± 4.5 0.001
Cellulose + polyacrylate 4 359 35.8 ± 3.0 54.0 ± 3.7 0.010
  1. N is the number of experimental nights, n is the total number of mosquitoes caught and SE is the standard error of the mean catch per night.
