BTV is transmitted by the midge Culicoides imicola, Culicoides variipennis, and other culicoids. Bluetongue disease, caused by BTV, is a non-contagious, insect-borne, viral disease of ruminants, mainly sheep and less frequently cattle, goats, buffalo, deer, dromedaries, and antelope. In sheep, BTV causes an acute disease with high morbidity and mortality. Major signs are high fever, excessive salivation, swelling of the face and tongue and cyanosis of the tongue. Swelling of the lips and tongue gives the tongue its typical blue appearance, though this sign is confined to a minority of the animals.
