Human killed by Mosquitoes is estimated 1 million per year worldwide. Almost half million death due to malaria.

WHO (World Health Organization) reported that mosquitoes affect on billion of people with diseases spread by them.

There are 3500 species of mosquitoes, but not all risk to human health. Some deadly diseases caused by mosquitoes:

- malaria
- Yellow Fever
- Zika Virus
- West Nile Virus
- Encephalitis
- Chikungunya Virus
- Dengue Fever

The question: Can Mosquitoes be exterminated on the earth? The answer is YES. Then, how?

A mosquito in action

The mosquitoes are difficult to be eliminated by traditional methods such as:
- using pesticides
- destroying habitat where mosquitoes are laying their eggs.

Method by using genetic know how was conducted in 2018. This method was initiated by scientists from UK.

The scientists sterile female mosquitoes to reduce their reproduction ability, while males are developing genetic mutation.

Further research then developed by a Chinese scientist with his associates. They treat mosquitoes by doing:
- Sterilized the target areas of female mosquitoes
- Infected the male mosquitoes by bacteria

These mosquitoes then be released to the specific locations (two islands).

Surprisingly, female mosquito almost extinct. Mosquito population reduce very much. The population reach to nearly zero.

  2. I'm not a fan of mosquitoes. When I get bitten by one, the spot where they got me swells a lot.
