In the US mosquitoes are destroyed using biological weapons

deliver a lot of discomfort, and the assertion is true not only for rural regions of Russia, but also for countries such as the United States. Plus, mosquitoes are carriers of dangerous diseases such as Dengue fever. The staff of the Agency for environmental protection of the United States thought to deal with blood-sucking insects in a rather unusual way: by using biological weapons, namely, using bacteria Wolbachia.

Gram-negative pleomorphic bacteria of the family Anaplasmataceae were first discovered by Marshall Hartigan and Simeon Burt Volboot in 1024. Agency for environment protection offers to infect mosquitoes with these bacteria and release them into the wild, allowing you to pass a malicious infection to other individuals. While the experimental method decided to test on populations of Aedes Albopictus, are the main paranoica of zika virus and Dengue fever.

A New bacteriological method of controlling mosquitoes should be a great alternative to chemical disinsectants. Wolbachia is an intracellular parasite that lives in the reproductive system of mosquitoes and reduces their fertility. After fertilization of females by males, they shall lay defective eggs from which the light will be mosquitoes already infected with the bacterium. This will prevent further increase in the population and significantly reduce the number of mosquitoes. Technology has already experience in Kentucky, new York and California. Soon the infected mosquitoes will release also in other 20 States.
