  1. Catch percentages, Catch indices (CI) and corresponding p values. Asterisks on p values indicate significant difference of the catch percentage with the catch percentage of the control (trap baited with the BG commercial lure). 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.
