FAQs
  • Wolbachia are extremely common bacteria that occur naturally in 50 per cent of insect species, including some mosquitoes, fruit flies, moths, dragonflies and butterflies.
     
    Wolbachia are safe for humans and the environment. Independent risk analyses indicate that the release of Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes poses negligible risk to humans and the environment.
     
    Wolbachia live inside insect cells and are passed from one generation to the next through an insect’s eggs. Aedes aegypti mosquitoes don’t normally carry Wolbachia, however many other mosquitoes do.
  • Insect sterility technology induced by symbiotic bacterium Wolbachia: we mainly do green and environmental protection insect sterility technology induced by symbiotic bacterium Wolbachia, rather than transgenic technology. The male Aedes albopictus carrying Wolbachia is still a natural mosquito. It only carries a new type of Wolbachia, which is an obligatory symbiotic bacterium of mosquitoes, and the genes of mosquitoes have not changed.
    Wolbachia and mosquitoes are symbiotic. With the end of mosquito life, Wolbachia will apoptosis and will not mutate. Many insects eaten by humans also carry Wolbachia naturally, and there is no evidence that Wolbachia will cause other diseases. The released male mosquitoes have a short life span and will die within a few days without transmitting the virus; In addition, studies have shown that mosquitoes carrying new Wolbachia show antagonism against mosquito borne diseases, so mosquitoes carrying new symbiotic bacteria are very safe.
     
  • "Mosquito control" currently only targets Aedes albopictus (the main vector of dengue fever) and Culex pipiens, but not other mosquito species (such as Aedes aegypti, Anopheles, etc.). Therefore, you may still be bitten by such mosquitoes or other biting insects.
