Table 3 Egg production, female fecundity and egg hatch rate of Aedes albopictus following blood meals with and without ATP

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

Treatment Sex ratio (female: male) Egg production per cage (104) Female fecundity Egg hatch rate (%)
W/O ATP 3000:1000 (3:1) 14.3 ± 1.0a 47.5 ± 3.4a 88.9 ± 2.9a
W ATP 3000:1000 (3:1) 18.6 ± 0.8b 61.9 ± 2.6b 86.7 ± 1.1a
  1. Within each column, values followed by different superscript letters were statistically different according to the Student t-test (P < 0.05)
  2. Abbreviations: W/O ATP blood meals without ATP, W ATP blood meals with ATP (0.05 g/ml)
