Figure 2

Linear regression analysis of insecticide-induced mortality by age by blood feeding regimen (sugar fed only - 0 blood, single blood meal - 1 blood, multiple blood meals – multiblood) in Anopheles arabiensis SENN-DDT females. Insecticide bioassays were conducted 4 hours post blood meal at each age interval indicated and mean percentage mortalities 24 hours post exposure are shown for DDT (A), permethrin (B), deltamethrin (C) and malathion (D). Goodness-of-fit for each regression is indicated by R2 values. No R2 value is given for multiple-feeding for the malathion treatment as only two points were available for analysis.
