This study showed that Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (Indiana) in most instances was not capable of replicating in Aedes aegypti when imbibed by the mosquitoes on a viremic host. Rapid inactivation of the virus was observed in some cases within 24 hours after imbibition. Attempts to demonstrate virus inactivation by midgut contents in vitro were not successful.
