Hack Patooey: New Farkin User Name: NotThatGuyAgain: mjjt: NZ planning a simpler version where GM mozzies so that only give birth to boys

I'm pretty sure eliminating all mosquitos would be bad for an ecosystem.  A lot of critters eat them, their larvae, and eggs.

I don't have any citations, but people have done studies and found that they aren't super important. One thing I remember from one was that no species that we found depends exclusively on mosquitoes at any stage in their life cycle.

Good.  Kill the farkers.  Every last one.
