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.
