Genetically Modified Mosquitos On The Way To The Keys

Some "Friendly" Mosquitos!

June 19, 2020

Genetically modified mosquitoes are on the way to the Florida Keys now thru 2022.   Yep.... Oxitec has received state and federal approval to release them.   

The non-biting males will mate with the wild-type females.  Their offspring will not live to maturity.  This will be the first time "friendly" mosquitoes are released in our country.   The thought is it's better than spraying.
