In America, mosquitoes can potentially lead to negative effects on the environment and on the human population. The new breed of mosquitoes is engineered simply to eliminate normal mosquitoes, thus reducing the problem!

The Florida Keys will be the first area in the world for genetically modified mosquitoes to be released. Based on the results of this test, scientists and environmentalists will then consider releasing the modified breed of mosquitoes throughout more of the country and perhaps Africa where malaria is a significant problem.
