eradicating diseases without impacting the environment

What?

Started with a trial in Darwin, Australia.

Mosquito eggs are injected with Wolbachia bacteria and, once the mosquitoes hatch, they breed with local mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes with Wolbachia are not able to transmit viruses such as dengue and zika, so over time the mosquito population transforms into one which will not transmit these diseases.

How?

Wolbachia bacteria is injected into mosquito eggs before they are hatched

 

Mosquitoes are released into the local area and breed with local mosquitoes

Once the eggs have been injected with bacteria, the breeding and releasing process is very simple
