Warns of dangers of GM mosquitoes

Supporters of the intended release of Oxitec’s GMO mosquitoes in Key Haven have been very vocal in letters to the editor and elsewhere. They may fear a Zika epidemic or simply believe GMO mosquitoes more environmentally friendly than drenching us all with pesticides.
