Table 11 Field trial two: Multiple Tukey’s all-pair comparisons of (i) the total number Culicoides collected (all species) and (ii) the total number of female potential AHSV vector species of Culicoides (Culicoides obsoletus (Meigen), 1818; Culicoides scoticus Downes and Kettle, 1952; Culicoides dewulfi (Goetghebuer), 1936; and Culicoides chiopterus (Meigen), 1830) collected within Ultraviolet (UV) Center for Disease Control (CDC) light-suction traps which are within stables whose entrances are either (i) covered with insecticide-treated mesh, (ii) covered with untreated mesh, or (iii) left uncovered, i.e. no mesh

From: Can insecticide-treated netting provide protection for Equids from Culicoides biting midges in the United Kingdom?
