Exploration of the impact of a novel MB5-release cartridge instead of treated nylon strips and 2-butanone instead of CO2 on the An. arabiensis trapping efficiency of Suna traps under semi-field conditions. a Compares the attractiveness of Suna traps baited either with MB5 treated nylon strips or MB5 containing cartridges (Biogents, Germany), both supplemented with CO2; the attractiveness of a human is shown as reference. b Evaluates the effectiveness of 2-butanone as a CO2 replacement for supplementation of MB5-baited Suna traps for attraction of An. arabiensis. The box plots in c compare the proportion of mosquitoes recaptured with 2-butanone supplemented traps when tested in choice tests. Note the different scales of the Y-axes in the figures. A total of 200 host-seeking mosquitoes were released per experimental night. The traps were run overnight for 12 h
