Preventing diseases by stopping mosquitoes reproduce

post-image
Mosquitoes are the deadliest creatures on Earth?? each year, nearly a million people die from a disease they caught from one of the tiny insects. Rather than focusing on finding a cure for?bug-borne diseases like malaria?and Zika, a team of scientists from the University of Arizona decided to focus their research directly on mosquitoes. In the process, they found a protein?seemingly essential for mosquito reproduction ? and the discovery could lead to the creation of a drug that acts as ?birth control? for the tiny killers. https://futurism.com/the-byte/mosquito-birth-control-prevent-deaths
