Table 2 Semi-field oviposition choice tests evaluating the attractiveness of oviposition substrates added to water in comparison to ponds filled with water only

From: Testing a pyriproxyfen auto-dissemination station attractive to gravid Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto for the development of a novel attract-release -and-kill strategy for malaria vector control

Treatment Mean number of females attracted to pond (95% CI) Rate ratio (95% CI) p-value
Testing the attraction to soil infusion
 soil infusion 39 (33–45) 1  
 water (pond 1) 29 (25–33) 0.74 (0.59–0.93) 0.011
 water (pond 2) 26 (22–31) 0.67 (0.54–0.82) < 0.001
 water (pond 3) 27 (23–31) 0.70 (0.56–0.88) 0.002
Testing the attraction to water treated with 5 ppm cedrol
 5 ppm cedrol 33 (30–35) 1  
 water (pond 1) 25 (21–29) 0.76 (0.63–0.92) 0.005
 water (pond 2) 26 (23–29) 0.80 (0.70–0.91) 0.001
 water (pond 3) 26 (23–30) 0.81 (0.70–0.94) 0.005
Testing the attraction to water treated with 20 ppm cedrol
 20 ppm cedrol 52 (46–60) 1  
 water (pond 1) 28 (24–33) 0.54 (0.43–0.67) < 0.001
 water (pond 2) 32 (28–38) 0.62 (0.48–0.80) < 0.001
 water (pond 3) 27 (21–35) 0.52 (0.38–0.72) < 0.001
