Researchers Target Mosquitoes In Fight Against Malaria

National Geographic: The War on Bugs
“Faced with more than 600,000 deaths a year from malaria, scientists and their philanthropic backers have set their sights on the lowly mosquito. If we could annihilate mosquitoes, malaria would go, too, and with it dengue and other plagues. But simple extermination by DEET is not going to work — the ecological consequences could be disastrous. Enter mosquito disorientation, misdirection, sabotage, and even torture…” (Pandika, 10/14).
