Real-time reverse transcription PCR cycle threshold (Ct) values for mosquitoes infected with Zika virus and stored at room temperature (21°C) for 2–30 days and for control samples (day 0) stored at −80°C until testing. Samples with a Ct <38 (dashed line) were considered positive. Each diamond indicates a mosquito pool. Neg, negative.
