Model estimates (± 95% CI) of the effects of the nestling age on the number of attracted (a) and proportion of blood filled mosquitoes (b) of Cx. modestus individuals (see also Tables 2,3).

Nestling age did not have a significant effect on the total number of attracted mosquitoes. However, blood-feeding success patterns peaked in the second week after hatching
