Control 162.0 ± 9.02 159 ± 7.33 2.39 ± 0.02 (57) 2.36 ± 0.02 (160)
LC20 143.5 ± 13.68 137 ± 9.04 2.36 ± 0.03 (40) 2.41 ± 0.02 (133)
LC50 105.7 ± 13.63 93 ± 10.23 2.42 ± 0.04 (37) 2.50 ± 0.02 (63)
LC70 72.5 ± 7.98 64 ± 5.32 2.48 ± 0.02* (34) 2.58 ± 0.05* (46)
  1. *Indicates statistical significance of the treatment in relation to the control (p<0.01). See Additional file 1: Tables S2 and S3 for the effect sizes of larval exposure to the sublethal Bti concentrations on wing lengths of adult males and females, respectively
