It's a damn shame that in the 60's Malaria was almost wiped out with the use of DDT. How many people have died because somebody wrote a book based on flawed science and the director of a new Federal Agency decided to flaunt his new found power?

I do not really think of those people being killed by mosquitoes. The people are killed by diseases, which the people may or may not have gotten from a mosquitoe. If they did, the disease killed them, not the insect. At least that is how I look at it.

I've killed a lot of mosquitoes over the years. So have many people. We kill a hundred times more mosquitoes than they kill us.
