Transmission of dengue type 1 was demonstrated for 3 strains of mosquitoes after oral infection. Rates of infection were similar to those observed in a control strain of . Three additional species belonging to the subgenus (, and ) were also susceptible to oral infection with dengue type 1 virus but transmission could not be demonstrated although virus was detected in the salivary glands of infected mosquitoes. Virus transmission was demonstrated for following parenteral infection. The results of this study support the view that non- mosquitoes may become involved in the transmission of dengue virus to humans.
