Disseminated infection rates of Ae. albopictus at day 14 post-infection. We exposed two mosquito populations, originating respectively from Fanar and Sarba, to an infectious blood-meal containing CHIKV, DENV-2 or WNV at a titer of 108 MID50/ml. At day 14 pi, the virus was detected on head squashes of surviving females by immuno-fluorescence assay. Disseminated infection rate corresponds to the proportion of females with infected head squashes (i.e. virus has disseminated beyond the midgut) among tested females. In brackets, the number of mosquitoes analyzed.
