Summary and Conclusions

  • 1.  It has been confirmed that and are efficient vectors of yellow fever virus.
  • 2.  , and have been studied and found to retain the virus in their bodies but to be unable to transmit it by bite.
  • 3.  We have been unable to repeat Davis’ transmission of yellow fever by the bite of and are inclined to believe that this species of mosquito is not a vector. However, mosquitoes of the species retain the virus in their bodies for long periods.
  • 4.  The results with are confusing. Davis, in experiments reported in this paper for the first time, was able to transmit yellow fever by the bite of this mosquito but we have been unable to repeat these observations.
