  1. Proportions following each other in the rows with different letters (a and b) are significantly different from each other. Asterisks on p values indicate significant difference with the control. The P-values are based on pair-wise comparison following chi-square goodness-of-fit in R 3.1.0 software.♂-Male Ae. aegypti, ♀- female Ae. aegypti.
