Table 4 Model outputs for experiments aiming to investigate the performance of 2-butanone and CO2 in Suna traps (a) and to evaluate the Suna trap in presence of a human blood host (b)

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

Explanatory variables Odds ratio (OR) Confidence interval (CI) p-value
Lower CI Higher CI
a. Exploring the association between 2-butanone or CO2 supplement to Suna traps and the proportion of released An. arabiensis trapped
 MB5-cartridge baited Suna trap supplemented with CO2 1    
 MB5-cartridge baited Suna trap supplemented with 2-butanone 0.03 0.03 0.04 < 0.001
 Unbaited Suna trap (no MB5, no CO2, only suction fan) 0.01 0.00 0.01 < 0.001
 Suna trap baited with CO2 only (no MB5) 0.73 0.64 0.84 < 0.001
b. Exploring the association between the proportion of released An. arabiensis recaptured by human landing volunteers and the presence of a pull device
