TED Talk: Re-engineering mosquitos to fight disease

Don’t be afraid of sharks or tigers. Well, you should fear the tiger mosquito. I love living this far north where one does not have to plan life around not getting bitten.

What I hate about spraying to kill them because the insecticides kill off other good insects. When I was young, I could catch fireflies in the back yard. From my teens until I moved north, I only saw fireflies other places.
