A new genetic technique, which artificially inflates the mosquito sex ratio in favor of males, could lead to dramatic reductions in mosquito populations - a major win in the battle against malaria (a disease which kills around a million people a year and infects millions more. And let me tell you - it sucks!).
"But wait!" I hear you say! "ECOSYSTEM HEALTH?!?"
Yet in many cases, scientists acknowledge that the ecological scar left by a missing mosquito would heal quickly as the niche was filled by other organisms. Life would continue as before — or even better. When it comes to the major disease vectors, "it's difficult to see what the downside would be to removal, except for collateral damage", says insect ecologist Steven Juliano, of Illinois State University in Normal. A world without mosquitoes would be "more secure for us", says medical entomologist Carlos Brisola Marcondes from the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Brazil. "The elimination of Anopheles would be very significant for mankind."
