The well-known Rabies virus belongs to the same family. VSV can infect insects and mammals. It is considered harmless to humans, and is a common laboratory virus used to study the properties of viruses in the Rhabdoviridae family, as well as to study virus evolution.

VSV is an arbovirus: Natural VSV infections encompass two steps, cytolytic infections of mammalian hosts and transmission by insects. In insects, infections are non-cytolytic persistent.
