Table 2 Effects of blood-feeding status and mosquito age on insecticide resistance bioassay in Anopheles sinensis mosquitoes

From: Anopheles sinensis mosquito insecticide resistance: comparison of three mosquito sample collection and preparation methods and mosquito age in resistance measurements

    Mortality Knockdown time
Trait Group n Mortality rate (%)* 95% confidence interval KT50(min)* 95% confidence interval
Blood feeding status Bloodfed 240 35.4a 30.3 - 40.5
  Non-bloodfed 80 38.8a 33.1 - 44.5
Mosquito age 3-day old 240 31.7a 28.7 - 34.7 216a 81.4 – 131.5
  20-day old 45 55.6b 52.5 - 58.7 106a 61.9 - 184.5
