Model fitting and mosquito biting rates. a The fit of the simulation results and the reported data with R-square = 0.9989. The weekly reported data of Zika cases in Bahia were adapted from the data presented in reference [29]. The simulation results obtained by searching for the best weekly biting rates are shown as a red solid line (). b The estimated weekly biting rates (bars) overlaid with monthly average biting rates (line). c Plots of the monthly average biting rates obtained using the mosquito population size of 10, 50, and 250 million
