Abstract

Adult females and larvae of were collected year-round for 3 ½ years at a site near Taipei, Taiwan. One hundred sixty-four isolates of Japanese encephalitis (JE) virus were obtained from ∼142,000 adult females and 1 isolate of the virus was obtained from ∼382,000 larvae. Virus was recovered from adult females every year, except the first, beginning in May. The single larval isolate was from specimens collected in June. The vertical transmission of JE virus in as a possible inter-epidemic viral survival mechanism is examined.
