Shame this has nothing to do with Monsato.
Evolution has a way of keeping things alive. But they all died in the lab. Yes, Susan. But you let them out... into the world. The world's a much bigger lab.

Jeez you people are dramatic. I mean yes there is the potential for things to go wrong but there is an equal potential for things to go great. There is a huge benefit to these modified mosquitoes if this is successful. The biggest being that the need to spray pesticides and poisons for them would diminish. Those substances are very harmful to wildlife. And giant mutant mosquitoes.....thats impossible.

messing with genetics of crops/animals (in this case insects) could lead to bad unexpected results. I dont know what dangers are to this experiment... but just imagine if this gene mutates and makes these critters resistant to pesticides or it mutates into something worse. I don't like this at all.

You could always raise a dragon fly and tie him to a string so he is your personal anti-mosquito weapon.
