Higher venereal infection and transmission rates with La Crosse virus in Aedes triseriatus engorged before mating



Higher venereal infection and transmission rates with La Crosse virus in Aedes triseriatus engorged before mating



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 28(5): 890-896



Infection of females of Aedes triseriatus (Say) from a laboratory colony by La Crosse virus occurred more frequently when the females were inseminated by infected males after the females had fed on blood (49% of 39) than when mating took place before engorgement (4% of 554). Transmission of the virus to mice also was more frequent in females venereally infected after engorgement on a normal mouse (35% of 34) than in females mated before engorgement (2% of 49).
