From: Efficacy and non-target impact of spinosad, Bti and temephos larvicides for control of Anopheles spp. in an endemic malaria region of southern Mexico

Treatment H’ (All samples) Jackknifed ϕ (± SE) Confidence limits (95%) Error (%) Observations
    Lower Upper   
Control 0.997 1.014 ± 0.067 0.933 1.154 1.68 H’ was slightly underestimated
Bti 0.974 0.993 ± 0.066 0.848 1.068 1.93 H’ was slightly underestimated
Spinosad 0.638 0.646 ± 0.047 0.482 0.890 1.32 H’ was slightly underestimated
Temephos 0.520 0.534 ± 0.052 0.412 0.654 2.70 H’ was slightly underestimated
  1. Pools were subjected to one of three larvicide treatments or an untreated control.
