Abstract

Background: Despite their importance in animal and human health, the epidemiology of species of the Leishmania enriettii complex remains poorly understood, including the identity of their biological vectors. Biting midges of the genus Forcipomyia (Lasiohelea) have been implicated in the...

Abstract

Background: The new genomic technologies have provided novel insights into the genetics of interactions between vectors, viruses and hosts, which are leading to advances in the control of arboviruses of medical importance. However, the development of tools and resources available for vectors of...

Abstract

The outbreak of bluetongue virus (BTV) serotype 8 (BTV-8) during 2006-2009 in Europe was the most costly epidemic of the virus in recorded history. In 2015, a BTV-8 strain re-emerged in France which has continued to circulate since then. To examine anecdotal reports of reduced pathogenicity and...

Abstract

Background: Culicoides sonorensis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) is a vector of epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV) serotypes 1 and 2 in North America, where these viruses are well-known pathogens of white-tailed deer (WTD) and other wild ruminants. Although historically rare, reports of...

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

A TissueLyser system (QIAGEN) was used to rapidly and accurately estimate bluetongue virus "loads" in individual adult Culicoides sonorensis Wirth & Jones (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae). The optimized homogenization program that was developed, involved shaking insects for 1 min at 25 Hz with 2- or 3-mm ...

Abstract

Intrathoracically inoculated Culicoides sonorensis Wirth & Jones were capable of transmitting vesicular stomatitis New Jersey virus (family Rhabdoviridae, genus Vesiculovirus, VSNJV) during blood feeding on the abdomen of six guinea pigs. None of the guinea pigs infected in this manner developed...

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...

Abstract

The influence of temperature on the likelihood of Culicoides sonorensis (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) transmitting African horse sickness virus (AHSV) serotypes 4 and 6, bluetongue virus (BTV) serotypes 10 and 16 and epizootic haemorrhagic disease of deer virus (EHDV) serotype 1 was investigated....

Abstract

Vectorial capacity of C. sonorensis for the transmission of bluetongue (BLU) virus was examined at a dairy in southern California, USA from January 1995 to December 1997. Insects were collected one to two times per week in five CDC-type suction traps (without light) baited with CO2 at a constant...
