Love the sound of this idea. setting an army of infected mosquitoes out there to kill off the females. I have one question that needs to be asked. this lethal injection that the male will give to the female which kills off the larve,. does this have any detrimental effect on the other preditors of the mosquito? such as the Dragon fly, should they consume the infected mother of the sick larve?
