Abstract

The La Crosse (LAC) virus infection rate of larvae that ingest LAC virus does not appear to be increased by concomitant infection of larvae by the gregarine parasite, . Infection rates ranged only from 0–2.6% in adult reared from groups of -infected larvae that had ingested LAC virus (California encephalitis group) at dosages of 2.0–7.7 log SMICLD/ml. Females resulting from orally infected larvae transmitted LAC virus to suckling mice. Larvae that were infected with and deveoured carcasses of adult mosquitoes containing 4.7 log SMICLD/ml failed to become infected. spores developing in transovarially infected mosquitoes did not harbor LAC virus; thus, does not appear to be a mechanism for virus dispersal.
