Table 2 Total and mean (±SE) number of female An. gambiae collected in MM-X traps baited with blend IB1 dispensed from nylon, polyester, cotton and cellulose + polyacrylate material within a screen-walled greenhouse

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

Treatment N Mosquitoes caught
n Mean (±SE)
IB1-treated nylon 16 428 26.8 ± 1.3a
IB1-treated polyester 16 377 23.6 ± 1.2a
IB1-treated cotton 16 503 31.4 ± 1.4b
IB1-treated cellulose + polyacrylate 16 779 48.7 ± 1.7c
  1. N is the number of experimental nights, n is the total number of mosquitoes caught whereas SE is the standard error of the mean catch per night. Mean ± SE mosquito catches within the same column assigned different letter superscripts are significantly different at P < 0.05 (Generalized Linear Models).
