In brief: Beattles me

Viruses usually infect through the respiratory tract.
This means that you get them through the nose and lungs and then they go to the brain. However, ticks and fleas and mosquitoes can inject the virus directly into your blood stream. I do not know any beetles that do this, but am sure there are some who try.
