From: Chemical composition and the insecticidal activity of Aeollanthus pubescens leaf essential oil against Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto

Mosquito strains LC50 (ppm) 95% CI RR50 95% CI ( LCL-UCL) LC95 (ppm) 95% CI (LCL–UCL) Slope (± SE) Intercept (±  SE) Chi(P) valuea
Kisumu 29.6 28.6–30.6 49.9 47.4–53.2 7.2 ± 0.4  − 10.6 ± 0.5 0.9
Acerkis 22.9 20.9–24.9 0.8 0.6–0.9 52.3 46.1–61.8 4.6 ± 0.4  − 6.3 ± 0.5 0.3
Kiskdr 28.5 27.1–29.9 0.9 0.8–1.2 49.7 46.1–54.9 6.8 ± 0.5  − 9.9 ± 0.7 0.1
  1. No mortality was observed in the control group of each mosquito strain
  2. LC50,, LC95 Lethal concentrations (50 and 95% mortality, respectively), C.I confidence interval, RR50 resistance ratio at LC50: LC50 [resistant strain)/ LC50 (Kisumu)], LCL lower confidence limit, UCL upper confidence limit, SE standard error
  3. aChi(P) is indicated to judge whether the data are well fitted to the regression or not. The fits are acceptable when the P-value is > 0.05
