Not only does the American public have all kinds of GMO food to navigate around, but now we have GMO mosquitoes to avoid. Especially for those who live in Florida, this will be quite the task. Has anyone ever tried not to get bitten in the Everglades?
As if this headline isn’t concerning enough, there are very good reasons why this plan to introduce genetically modified mosquitoes into the Florida Keys is a bad one. For instance, once they’re let loose, there is no stopping them from [...]
(NaturalNews) It's mosquito season again here in North America. This is the time of year when people rely on pesticides for their yards or they use synthetic insect repellants. Many of us are under the false impression that this is the heavy-duty approach and everything else is "not... [...]

Frankenmosquitoes Are Headed to Florida!

Genetically engineered mosquitoes may be released in the Florida Keys in the next month or two. Will they make infectious diseases spread even more quickly? Action Alerts!
As we reported previously, Oxitec, a British biotech company, plans to release an experimental mosquito population genetically engineered to combat dengue fever. This is especially unnecessary since there have been no [...]
Are you aware that genetically modified mosquitoes are being set for release worldwide? Right after GM mosquitoes were let loose in Brazil, dengue fever cases spiked. Now, the Florida Keys are in danger of facing a similar fate. The mosquitoes haven’t even been officially approved, but Oxitec, the British company who created the mosquitoes, has already shipped them to Florida. The only hope is a very vocal grassroots effort to tell the Governor of Florida that these mosquitoes will ruin touri [...]
Heather CallaghanActivist PostLast Thursday, a town hall meeting at Harvey Government Center in Key West drew a large crowd that erupted in opposition to a proposal to release genetically modified mosquitoes this coming Spring. It's a proposal from a seemingly strange choice - the United Kingdom.British company Oxitec is petitioning the U.S. Government for permission to release male GE Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that contain a gene whereby they die unless receiving an antidote in the form of antib [...]

Will the crazy GMO-creations ever come to a halt? Are our crops not enough for biotech? GM mosquitoes developed by Oxitec, a UK company, were already released in other countries as a means to control disease. The company is also trying to release them in the Florida Keys, while working to release GM olive flies in Spain. But it gets even more bizarre – now Oxitec wants to release GM moths in New York.
GeneWatch UK has been following Oxitec’s moves and has noted th [...]

Natural Living Ideas | The days are finally getting longer, the snow is (slowly!) beginning to melt, and spring officially arrives in just a few days! While the prospect of warmer weather has us all a bit giddy, we can’t forget the unwelcome intruders that tag along with the sunny summer weather.
Yes, we are talking about mosquitoes, and everybody knows that they can be a huge nuisance. However, using chemical products to keep them away is not on the top of everyone’s wish list.

(NaturalNews) This time of year, it's difficult to go anywhere outside without the familiar high-pitched buzz of mosquitoes becoming a part of the routine. Noise aside, it's often the resulting red bump and incessant itchiness that is frustrating. Many times, not even coveted creams... [...]
Elizabeth Renter - Natural Society | In the winter, we complain about the cold. In the summer, it’s the heat—and the mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can seriously add frustration to any outdoor activity, and if you’re like me, you want to spend as much time outdoors as possible when the weather heats up.
While there are plenty of sprays, lotions, and gels that offer to keep the pests away, we all know these chemical baths are far from safe. Luckily, you can easily use a natural mosquito repelle [...]
