Table 1 Escape and mortality in test mosquito species in contact, non-contact and placebo exposure of slow-release insecticidal paint (SRIP) formulation

From: Behavioural response of mosquito vectors Aedes aegypti, Anopheles stephensi and Culex quinquefasciatus to synthetic pyrethroid and organophosphorus-based slow-release insecticidal paint
