Oviposition preferences of C. stellifer under different two-choice conditions. The percentage of egg batch deposited (a), and the number of eggs deposited (b), by individual females across all experiments. Asterisk indicates that midge preference for treatment substrates over controls within each experiment (odds ratio) was significant (P < 0.05). White bars indicate control (DI water)
