Excellent news:  Australian scientists decimate disease-carrying mosquitos.

In JCU laboratories, researchers bred almost 20 million mosquitoes, infecting males with bacteria that made them sterile. Then, last summer, they released over three million of them in three towns on the Cassowary Coast.
The sterile male mosquitoes didn’t bite or spread disease, but when they mated with wild females, the resulting eggs didn’t hatch, and the population crashed.
The¬†Aedes aegypti is also an invasive species, meaning that enviromentalists can’t complain about wiping them out….Win-win.
