Abstract:

Abstract1.1) An account is given of experiments to determine the amount and time of first appearance of virus in Aedes aegypti infected with three arthropod-borne viruses.2.2) In mosquitoes with infections of over one day duration, the virus in the haemolymph represented usually from 0.01 to 1.0 per cent. of the total in the insect.3.3) Virus appeared in the haemolymph about 10 minutes after the infective blood meal, disappeared after about 3 hours, and reappeared about 48 hours later.4.4) These observations and their bearing on our knowledge of the multiplication of viruses in insects are briefly discussed.
