Abstract

Abstract

Infection rates ranged from 0–2.1% in adults of reared from groups of larvae that had ingested La Crosse (LAC) virus (California encephalitis group) at dosages of 7.0–8.3 log SMICLD/ml. Females resulting from orally infected larvae transmitted the virus to suckling mice. Larvae that devoured carcasses of transovarially infected larvae containing 3.0 log SMICLD/ml failed to become infected. Ingestion by larvae of infected carcasses appears, therefore, to be unimportant as a method of horizontal amplification of LAC virus.
