This sounds like a Wile E. Coyote plotline, culminating with all the mosquitoes chasing and attacking him. What could possibly go wrong?

Will this work if they discover the genetic mutation that produces Miley Cyrus fans ?

Genetically Modified Mosquitoes opened for the Beatles.

Thank you, Oxitec, “first and biggest factory” of genetically modified mosquitoes.

What else do you "engineer"?

Why would scientists want to kill their cousins?

Oh, I need to read the story?

This article is too vague. How do the scientists plan on having sex with the mosquitoes? Are they going to kill their own cousins or the mosquitoes' cousins?
