Table 2 Mobile phase mortality rate due to insecticides for different application frequencies and the corresponding characteristic time

From: Modeling and simulation of the spatial population dynamics of the Aedes aegypti mosquito with an insecticide application

Appl. frequency \(\mu _1^i\) (1/day) \(t_{char}\) Duration of effect
Once a day 6.86 by application 3.5 (h)  
Twice a week 24 by application 1 (h) 30 (min) \(\approx\) 0.02 (day)
Once a week 48 by application 30 (min)  
Every two weeks 96 by application 15 (min)
