" Mutant Mosquitoes: Malaysia Releases Sterile Males to Compete with the Wild Males for Female !"

Malaysia release of genetically modified insects sparks fears of uncontrollable new species

" Greenies fear a giant new mutant mega mosquito will evolve and attack mankind ."


Malaysia has released 6,000 genetically modified mosquitoes into a forest in the first experiment of its kind in Asia aimed at curbing dengue fever.The field test is meant to pave the way for the official use of genetically engineered Aedes aegypti male mosquitoes to mate with females and produce offspring with shorter lives, thus curtailing the population.

Only female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes spread dengue fever, which killed 134 people in Malaysia last year.

do these genetically altered mosquitos possess the hormone that makes them interested in mating with females. What do you want to bet that malaysia is going to have a whole new species of deadly, potent homosexual mosquitos wanting the right to marry.

No, they are normal mosquitos that have been exposed to high levels of radiation to sterilize them.They retain their normal instinct to breed .

The real question is if a mosquito sucks blood from an aids infected queer critter and then sucks your blood will you develop the HIV virus ?If they are able to spread fever by swapping blood why not Aids ?
