Table 3 Association between outdoor An. arabiensis landing and transfluthrin-treated fabrics (1.25 and 2.5 g/m2) around eave gaps

From: Evaluating putative repellent ‘push’ and attractive ‘pull’ components for manipulating the odour orientation of host-seeking malaria vectors in the peri-domestic space
