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

Cage structure No. of mosquitoes Egg production per cage (104) Female fecundity Egg hatch rate (%)
Big cage A 12,000 53.3 ± 1.1a 59.2 ± 1.2a 90.4 ± 0.2a
Big cage B-1 20,000 46.6 ± 1.7a 31.1 ± 1.1b 88.6 ± 1.1a
Big cage B-2 20,000 63.6 ± 1.9b 42.4 ± 1.3c 87.9 ± 1.3a
  1. Within each column, values followed by different superscript letters were statistically different in the same treatment cage according to ANOVA analysis and Tukey post-hoc test (P < 0.05)
