Fig. 1

Dose-response effects of adulticides in Aedes albopictus from the Swiss-Italian border region. The curves show the estimated dose-response relationship between the 24 h mortality and the percentage insecticide on the filter paper in WHO insecticide susceptibility assays. The symbols represent the summaries of the actual measurements in the bioassays, while the curves are the predicted estimates of the mean and the shaded areas the 95% confidence intervals around the means. The vertical lines indicate the discriminating concentrations in Ae. aegypti for DDT, λ-cyhalothrin, malathion and permethrin, and in Anopheles gambiae for bendiocarb, as there are no discriminating concentrations established for Ae. albopictus
