The mortality of healthy adult weevils at 3 days, 6 days and 9 days post-introduction of (A) B27 conidiated cadavers and (B) ECS1 conidiated cadavers at different ratios inside a 500 mL container. Results of multifactorial “F1-LD-F1” non-parametric analyses: (A) Wald-type statistics (WTS) = 47.57, df = 4, P < 0.001 (for ratios), WTS = 436.53, df = 2, P < 0.001 (for measured times), WTS = 10.64, df = 8, P = 0.22 (for interactions), (B) WTS = 93.85, df = 4, P < 0.001 (for ratios), WTS = 581.02, df = 2, P < 0.001 (for measured times), WTS = 24.45, df = 8, P < 0.01 (for interactions). Columns with different letters are significantly different from each other (pairwise Wilcoxon rank-sum test, P < 0.05). (A,B) were analysed separately. Error bars represent standard errors.
