    so they make a new mosquitoe that can get a different disease that they have a hard time curing. yes this makes a lot of sense to me.

    Why is it dumb? Your first attempt at dismissing it was not factual....do you have anything else?

    I can only speak for the last 50 years living here and watching scientists chase their tails trying to "fix" the mosquito problem.

    This program is engineered to reduce total number of that species of mosquitos period, possibly to zero. Are you saying that the mosquitos will 'create' a new disease? They really can only be vectors...carriers. And that tends to be (but not exclusively) species-specific....those host relationships take generations to develop. Different mosquito species carry different diseases.

    My folks are on Islamorada, and I have relatives and friends all over FL. Your 'experience' isnt really relevant to this particular program without addressing it specifically.

    Well, I am outside most of the time. I hardly ever see a mosquito anymore. I see more love bugs. I rid ATVs all over the swamps from Brevard County Okeechobee and Marion County. Surf cast from Cape Canaveral National Sea Shore to Sebastian Inlet and still haven seen a bad mosquito problem worth worrying about.
    I really don't know how more specific I can be.
    Oh, and our dealership is right next to a 3 acre retention pond.

    It's not about a 'bad mosquito problem'. It's about reducing the carriers of certain diseases. Those diseases could recirculate again in FL....this is an attempt to reduce that, without spraying, etc. I guess it's only important if you think you or those you care about wont get those diseases. Dengue is also known as 'break-bone' fever.....exceedingly painful.

    There is more talk about deer tick illness like lyme diease and parasites in still waters more so than mosquitos.
