Abstract

The larvicide effects of three endecticide products were studied against house fly larvae. Repeated- measure design was used for the analysis of variance. The observed data followed different distributions. For this reason, instead of the repeated measure ANOVA, three fast statistical methods were applied simultaneously. First, the test for homogeneity was carried out for registered samples by using the Friedman test, and the Wilcoxon-Wilcox test was applied for pairwise comparisons. Secondly, an extended median test was applied for the same problem of test for homogeneity, and the Neményi test was used for pairwise comparisons. Thirdly, a 2×2 contingency table analysis was carried out, exploiting the specific feature of the database and informatical tools. The three simultaneous evaluations enabled us to come to sound, affirmative conclusions. In the course of veterinary-biological interpretation we demonstrated the statistically reliable temporal efficiency of the three products. We also presented the relative efficiency and recognizable features of the products. We highlighted the significantly prompt and long release larvicide effects of the drugs. We discussed and compared the information content of the applied statistical methods.
