Modified Mosquitoes

In this photo made available by the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, research entomologist Catherine Pruszynski releases male mosquitos in Key West, Fla., testing a new way to kill mosquitoes that carry Zika and other viruses Tuesday, April 18, 2017. The mosquitos bred by a Kentucky-based company are infected with the naturally occurring Wolbachia bacteria. When the lab-bred mosquitoes mate with wild female mosquitoes the offspring don't survive adulthood. (Beth Ranson/Florida Keys Mosquito Control District via AP)
