    Battle Rises in Florida Keys Over Fighting Mosquitoes With Mosquitoes

    Yes, no, not sure?????
    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/20/us...T.nav=top-news

    KEY HAVEN, Fla. — In this bite-size community near Key West, like so many other mosquito-plagued spots up and down the Florida Keys, residents long ago made peace with insecticides dropped into town by planes or rumbling by on trucks. Cans of Off are offered at outdoor parties. Patio screens are greeted with relief.

    But Keys residents are far less enamored of another approach to mosquito control — a proposal to release the nation’s first genetically modified mosquitoes, hatched in a lab and pumped with synthetic DNA to try to combat two painful, mosquito-borne viral diseases, dengue and chikungunya.

    Sounds like another "love bug" cure.

    more like the Australian frog issue all over again. this is a really stupid idea if you ask me.
    you setup a creature that while fighting one thing could harm others.

    those things are just another acceptance to living in FL just like heat during the summer.

    Don't want to deal with mosquitos? Don't live in the tropics. How is that so hard to understand.

    Or Alaska?

    How about New Jersey and Tennessee? They used to have malaria and yellow fever in those states. They're under snow right now.

    I read thru the article, it doesnt seem to have the potential to harm humans or anything else. It's pretty interesting, I'd want to know more.

    And the results have been good where the program's been tried before: 60-90% reduction in that species of mosquito.

    We have mosquitos almost all year round. How many months does NJ have mosquitos?
    Furthermore, we dress a lot lighter than in Alaska and most of yankee land.

    Once he announces one of his simplistic slogan he'll never back off. Rather he will only shift and escalate his messages.

    Nor does he make sense given all the efforts and expenses in his area to control mosquitoes - nor does he realize he lives in a tropical zone because of all those efforts. That all sets aside his not grasping the issue isn't just about mosquitoes, but mosquitoes spreading a particular disease.
