The impact of plant nutrients on Ae. aegypti male and female survival. a Survival curves of female Ae. aegypti on P. dulce, 6% glucose solution and exclusively mouse blood, with an initial three blood meal rations offered to those held on P. dulce and glucose solution (P-value < 0.001). (bc) Survival curves of female and male Ae.aegypti, respectively, fed on P. dulce and glucose without initial blood meal (P-value < 0.001). d Survival curves of females held on L. nepetifolia, O. ficus-indica, 6% glucose solution and exclusively mouse blood, with the former three offered three initial blood meal rations (P-value < 0.001). (ef) Survival curves of female and male Ae. aegypti, respectively, fed on L. nepetifolia, O. ficus-indica or glucose solution without an initial blood meal (P-value < 0.001). Survival curves denoted by different letters are significantly different. Differences in survival curves were detected using Kaplan-Meier analysis and Cox regression analyses
