Ordinarily, I’m leery of genetically engineering animals, let alone releasing them into the wild. But in the case of dengue- and Zika- bearing mosquitoes, I’ll make an exception.
“750 million genetically engineered mosquitoes approved for release in the Florida Keys“

Yeah, given that they’ve been working on this for ten years, and given how fast mosquito generations go, I expect that if there were unforeseen effects they’d have found them by now. And this would be an alternative to spraying!
