Genetically Altered Mosquitoes Will Have to Wait

A plan by the Florida Keys Mosquito Control district to release genetically altered mosquitoes in an attempt to curb their numbers will have to wait. According to the Miami Herald the ultimate delay is due to confusion over government permits. The plan is to have the altered mosquitoes compete with the natural mosquitoes and the altered mosquitoes have been bred to produce offspring that die young. They are expecting to move the promising plan back to late spring. If you want to learn more about Florida Mosquito control checkout our bug database!
