Female and infected by inoculation with St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) virus transmitted virus transovarially to their F progeny. With , minimal infection rates (MIR) in F larvae were similar for progeny reared at 18 (± 1)°C or 27 (± 1)°C, whereas, MIR's were significantly higher in F adults reared at 18°C, than they were in F adults reared at 27°C. Use of different strains of SLE virus appeared to influence transovarial transmission of virus by , but not by . Transovarial transmission of SLE virus was not demonstrated with colonized strains of and , and field strains of .
