Experiments were conducted to determine whether West Nile (WN) virus was transmitted vertically by colonized strains of Aedes albopictus, Ae. aegypti, and Culex tritaeniorhynchus. Female mosquitoes were infected by intrathoracic inoculation with WN virus, and the F1 progeny were tested for virus by the fluorescence antibody technique and the newborn mouse assay. Each of the three mosquito species transmitted WN virus to F1 adults derived from immature forms reared at 26 degrees C. The minimal… CONTINUE READING
