|Vertical transmission of West Nile virus in Cx. pipiens following infection with WNV MP20 or WNV WT|
|WNV MP20||WNV WT|
|total larvae tested1||2772||2410|
|WNV + rafts/total (%)||1/51 (1.96)||4/47 (8.51)|

|WNV+ OV 3–4 rafts/total4||1/1||4/4|
1larvae were processed and tested in pools of 20–25.
2WNV+ pools were assumed to have a single positive individual.
3Refers to the proportion of ovipositing females vertically transmitting.
4Refers to the proportion of 3rd or 4th oviposition rafts which were WNV+.
