Ask The Keys!

After a long pause on the topic of genetically modified mosquitos and previous endeavours by the Florida Keys Mosquito Control board (FKMC), the board is preparing to proceed with another new and different genetically engineered mosquito technology from Oxitec. This particular one is different than their prior efforts in the last 4+ years. There is still not much information known about this new proposal and there will be a FKMC workshop during their meeting on Tuesday June 23 starting at 1:00pm. Please give us your input on the matter by answering the three questions below so that we may make the community’s thoughts on the matter known at the meeting.

For more information please visit their website.
