There are mosquitoes that carry very serious diseases. Malaria kills many people each year, and West Nile Virus is another disease that comes from mosquitoes. If we genetically alter them, it's a way that we can cut down on these diseases. The people in developing countries would greatly appreciate the improved quality of life that would come with these alterations.
Because the level of mosquito suppression that’s required to stop disease transmission depends on a wide variety of factors, such as the mosquito population, the human population, and the amount of disease already circulating genetically altering the mosquitoes genes so that they become extinct is a very effective means of getting rid of them.
No, genetically altering mosquitoes is not a good idea because we should not mess with nature. We should allow every creature to age and grow naturally. By creating new life forms, we are playing God. This will only lead to negative consequences. Mosquitos should be left alone and studied as they are.
No, genetically altering mosquitoes is not a good idea. Geneticaly modifying any living thing is a bad idea. Evolution will always find a way to corrupt at least a small percentage of any species of organism, and it will come back to bite us in the butt, maybe literally. A lot of zombie movies start with someone messing around with genetic modification.
