Niko, please don't laugh and also consider my plea that I all I know about gene editing , CRISPR and biology can be fitted into a teacup, but... Maybe, just maybe we don't want to eliminate ALL the mosquitoes or even a substantial fraction!? I think mosquitoes are a pretty useless group in general, but perhaps these little flying hypodermics act as gene transfer agents that somehow enhance evolution? Could that be true? I dunno. I just have this vision of some not so intelligent hominid ancestor of ours getting bit by a mosquito and voila, us!
