Err...I don't know if I agree with this. I tend to think that nature, even the parts we don't like such as mosquitos, should be left alone. Tampering with the natural world and the ecosystem can have unintended consequences.

Zima is a scary thing but have they really tested all scenarios with this male mosquitoe virus. Will it cross over to other insects. Will this effect bee's, butterflies, grasshopper ect. Will it effect the mosquitoes that don't carry the diseases.

What about the creatures that depend on mosquitoes as a food source. If we interfere with a food chain what are the ramifications.

We have messed with nature before and it usually has unintended consequences.

Some wildlife will miss having mosquitoes to eat.
