A standard colonized population (000 line) of Culicoides variipennis (Coquillett) was used as the control for comparing the infection rate (IR) responses of different field populations of the vector to oral infection with several strains of bluetongue virus (BTV) that belonged to four serotypes. Three field populations from Colorado and Oregon tested concurrently in 1969 were differently susceptible to three BTV strains representing three serotypes. The IR's of each of the three populations… CONTINUE READING
