This GMM kill female mosquitoes
Experimentation done in three areas
There is strong opposition at the local level
Ranchi: Genetically modified Mosquito will take control of few areas of Florida.
Many social organizations and other groups of Florida are opposing it. They are
opposing the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in this way. They argue
that citizens should get complete information about whether it can have fatal
consequences or not. Otherwise the public get into any other trouble in the matter
of getting rid of one problem. However, the experiment that American officials
are going to try here is the result of a decade of research. They believe that these
genetically modified mosquitoes can play a better role in reducing the population
of real mosquitoes. Scientists associated with this work have also claimed to have
thoroughly investigated every aspect of it. This method is being tried after being
aware of other dangerous consequences of killing mosquitoes by spraying
pesticides repeatedly in the area. According to the information received about this
test, in the initial phase, 12 thousand such genetically modified mosquito eggs
will be released in certain areas. Six areas have been identified for this. After
coming in contact with water there, mosquitoes will be born from these eggs. It is
made by a US-owned British company Oxitech. By next week these mosquitoes
will get into the atmosphere once they grow up. After that the genetically
modified mosquitoes will start realizing. The proposal to control the mosquito
population with genetically modified mosquitoes was approved by the US
government in the month of May 2020. There are plans to release 750 million
such mosquitoes in two years.
Many local organizations in Florida are opposing this
Zika virus. It has been claimed that genetically modified mosquitoes will be able
to overcome all these problems. The plan has been told that 144,000 male
mosquitoes will be released first. These will be released during a period of three
months. After releasing them, it will be investigated whether they are making
physical contact with natural female mosquitoes. In the event of contact, the
female mosquito will lay eggs, mosquitoes will not be born from them. The
target of this whole experiment is the natural female mosquitoes that sting and
suck blood in people. At the same time, the virus present in them enters the body
of the people. Aedes aegypti class female mosquitoes prefer to stay close to the
human population because they receive human blood nearby. The Oxitech
company has claimed that this new species of genetically modified mosquitoes
has the potential to destroy the next generation of populations. Apart from this, it
also contains viruses that kill female mosquitoes. This rapidly reduces mosquito
population. In order to breed mosquitoes in the laboratory, help has been taken
from female mosquitoes who are born with tetracycline antibiotics in their body.
In the boxes in which these eggs have been brought, there is only food and water
for the eggs.
Genetically modified Mosquito will target female mosquitoes
which, the work of virus-borne female mosquitoes will begin to be eliminated.
During this time, the entire incident will also be monitored. This experiment has
been successful everywhere. This method has been successful in reducing the
mosquito population by 95 percent in a region of Brazil. Overall, this experiment
is going to start even after opposition from social organizations at the local level.
About which the company claims 100 percent success, while the opposing social
organizations have their own scientific arguments. If the experiment is successful,
But genetically, it would be more important to investigate all aspects.
