Abstract

Abstract

() is a vector of Venezuelan encephalitis (VE) virus at a marsh focus in Guatemala and has low mesenteronal thresholds for infection by and transmission of two enzootic strains of VE virus. In contrast, samples of natural populations and subsequent F and F generations of these mosquitoes have a high mesenteronal threshold for infection by an epizootic VE strain isolated at the same marsh during the end of the 1969 VE epidemic-equine epizootic. The resistance of () to mesenteronal infection by this VE strain probably represents a key factor in the apparent disappearance of epizootic VE virus from the marsh focus following the 1969 outbreak.
