  1. The probit regressions parameters (χ2 value of the Pearson goodness-of-fit test, slope and intercept) are indicated. No knockdown time was recorded in the control group of each mosquito strain
  2. KDT50,KDT95 Knockdown times for 50 and 95% of adult mosquitoes after 3 min of exposure to the net pieces impregnated with the essential oil in the cone test
