Table 2 Comparison of the mean mosquito collection per person per night between huts with trasnfluthrin-treated sisal baskets in combination with LLINs to those with untreated sisal baskets and LLINs

From: Potential benefits of combining transfluthrin-treated sisal products and long-lasting insecticidal nets for controlling indoor-biting malaria vectors
