Astounding developments in microscopic surgery have made this sterility possible.

Does this mean that a guy finally gets to claim he has a headache?

Also, define "sterile." As more than one college-age lad has said: "Whaddaya mean she's pregnant? We only did it once!"

The male mosquitoes haven been irradiated to sterilize them.
They've also been dyed to appear fluorescent under a black light.
It is hoped that this will reduce the surplus population with non-viable eggs.
Taking a bite out of crime.

Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino
A sterile florescent mosquito, my libido, yeah

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello

Sterile Florescent Mosquito. No, no. They didn't open for anyone. But it's a thought of what could have been.

Aedes Aegypti in California? The world is coming to an end. REPENT!

I think that they tried this in the Florida Keys. It didn't end well.

Love will find a way.

What if the "so-called" aggressive skeeterz are just butch?B

A new career field opens up - a specialist that performs vasectomies on male mosquitoes.
