When feeding on its host plant, both nymphs and adults can acquire viruses if the plant is already infected, then becoming viruliferous. Even though nymphs can carry viruses inside their bodies, they are unable to disseminate them within important distances, so virus dispersal depends entirely on the adults, which are the mobile stage and also the responsible for selection and colonization of the host plant (Byrne & Bellows, 1991).
