sema.460 yeast kills larvae of multiple mosquito species. Oral consumption of sema.460 results in high levels of Ae. albopictus (a), An. gambiae (b) and Cx. quinquefasciatus (c) larval mortality. a A total of 180 Ae. albopictus larvae were assessed in nine replicate containers/condition, each with 20 larvae. b 240 An. gambiae larvae were evaluated in 12 replicate containers/condition, each with 20 larvae. c 240 Cx. quinquefasciatus larvae were assessed in 12 replicate containers/condition with 20 larvae in each container. The results shown in this figure were compiled from three biological replicate experiments conducted on each mosquito species. Data shown represent mean larval mortalities. ***P < 0.001 in comparison to control-fed larvae (t-test)
