Abstract

We investigated the susceptibility of Culicoides sonorensis to Cache Valley virus (CVV) (family Bunyaviridae, genus Orthobunyavirus) infection and the potential that it could be a vector or site of virus reassortment. CVV is native to the New World and causes disease in livestock. Infected blood...

Abstract

Culicoides sonorensis is the primary vector of bluetongue and epizootic hemorrhagic disease viruses in North America. Bluetongue disease is one of the most economically important arthropod-borne diseases of sheep in North America, because it causes significant morbidity and mortality and can lead...

Abstract

Age-grading of insects is important in the control and monitoring of both insect populations and vector-borne diseases. Microscopy and morphological techniques exist to age-grade most blood-feeding flies, but these techniques are laborious, often destructive to the insects, and slow. Near-infrared...

Abstract

Working stocks of Weldona virus (isolate 76V-21935) were produced in African green monkey kidney cells up to 4.8 log10 TCID50. TCID50 virus in cell culture media were mixed 1:1 with sheep blood and fed to females of Culicoides sonorensis in two separate trials. Females of C. sonorensis were...

Abstract

A wide variety of blood-feeding Diptera feed on extrafloral sugar sources such as homopteran honeydew. The significance of these sugar sources to insect survival and disease transmission is poorly known. Culicoides sonorensis, a biting midge, can survive on plant sugars but might also feed on...

Abstract

Aquatic insects must regulate the ion concentrations of their haemolymph, and freshwater insects tend to loose ions to their aquatic environment. The osmoregulatory organs of larvae and pupae of C. sonorensis have not been previously reported. Silver nitrate was used to detect tissues in immature...

Abstract

A study was conducted to evaluate the effects of ivermectin with or without clorsulon on the susceptibility of Culicoides sonorensis [C. variipennis sonorensis] to Bluetongue virus (BTV) and Epizootic haemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV). Shetland ponies, sheep and elks seronegative for BTV and EHDV...
