Exploring the impact of a complete push-pull set-up on An. arabiensis landing on a human volunteer or being attracted to a trap. Proportion of released mosquitoes landing on the human volunteer outside the hut in the presence of a Suna trap (a). Proportion of mosquitoes collected while landing on the human volunteer out of all mosquitoes recollected (total of HLC and trap catches) (b). Proportion of mosquitoes trapped in unbaited or baited Suna traps (in presence of HLC) out of all mosquitoes released (c). A total of 160 host-seeking mosquitoes were released in the semi-field system per experimental night. HLCs were done for 4 h (19.00–23.00 h) and the traps ran overnight for 12 h
