Tunnel test (non-animal) – coming soon

The tunnel test is used to measure the mortality and blood feeding success of host-seeking mosquitoes when they are exposed to an insecticide-treated net in an experimental chamber.

In the chamber, mosquitoes are free-flying and use host cues to locate a source of blood (non-animal bait).

The tunnel test can measure net-induced mortality and blood feeding success over an extended duration and is particularly useful for testing insecticides with excito-repellent (contact-irritancy) effects.
