If I had to pick my least favorite thing about Summertime, it wouldn’t be the heat.  It would be the mosquitos.  Those blood-sucking little buggers leave me itchy for weeks!  Add to that the fact that they carry diseases like West Nile Virus and H1N1 Flu, and there’s really no good reason to put up with them.  And luckily, scientists seem to agree.  Read on to see what their plan is!

A group of scientists in England think they can cut the mosquitos’ numbers by releasing more mosquitos into the population.  I know, it sounds counter-intuitive; but these are no ordinary mosquitos.  Check out the NBC report below!

What do you think?  Will fewer mosquitos ultimately be a blessing for human comfort, or a curse for the eco-system?
