Table 6 Maximum, minimum and average population of the last 14 simulated days in heterogeneous scenario, corresponding to Fig. 6, for each insecticide application strategy. Between parentheses we show these values relative to the equilibrium solution \(M^* = 14752\)

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

Twice a week 11967 (\(81.1\%\)) 13300 (\(90.6\%\)) 12818 (\(86.9\%\))
Once a week 11189 (\(75.9\%\)) 13560 (\(91.9\%\)) 12736 (\(86.3\%\))
Once in two weeks 10247 (\(69.5\%\)) 14187 (\(96.2\%\)) 13044 (\(88.4\%\))
