Table 3 World Health Organisation (WHO) Cone Bioassays: Regression coefficients with 95 % Wald confidence intervals and ∆AIC for the fixed effects of two final Bayesian general linear mixed models with a Binomial error distribution used to describe (i) mortality rate and (ii) blood feeding rate of C. nubeculosus (Meigen), 1830 exposed during WHO cone bioassay tests
