  1. Standard choice-chamber bioassays were performed on three investigators using the laboratory-reared Anopheles funestus FANG (insecticide-susceptible) and FUMOZ-R (pyrethroid-resistant) strains. Each arm of an investigator acted as a control and treatment respectively. Results (p) of paired t-tests comparing control vs treatment arms are given
  2. aindicates significant difference at 95 % confidence
