Table 2 Insemination rate, egg production, female fecundity and egg hatch rate from varied sex ratios of Aedes albopictus adults in small cages

From: Establishment of a medium-scale mosquito facility: tests on mass production cages for Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae)

Sex ratio (female: male) Insemination rate (%) Egg production per cage (104) Female fecundity Egg hatch rate (%)
1:1 (2000: 2000) 98.7 ± 0.8a 10.3 ± 0.4a 51.7 ± 2.0a 87.5 ± 0.7a
2:1 (2667: 1333) 97.3 ± 1.2a 12.8 ± 0.2b 48.1 ± 0.7a 88.0 ± 1.2a
3:1 (3000: 1000) 96.7 ± 1.1a 14.2 ± 0.3c 47.5 ± 1.1a 87.8 ± 0.7a
  1. Within each column, values followed by different superscript letters were statistically different in the same treatment cage using ANOVA analysis and Tukey post-hoc test (P < 0.05)
