Kill the d*mn insects

After reading this story, I have no qualms about using strong methods of eradicating the vector. It's bad enough we have to accommodate Lyme disease and West Nile in this country. But this Chagas disease is nasty and it's spreading.

Check it out: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/chagas-tropical-disease-really-aids-145745645.html

I read somewhere about a guy who invented a genetically altered mosquito whose males are normal but whose females are wingless. Wingless females cannot bite animals, which they need to do for fertility. So they don't reproduce. So the males mate with winged females. And the population of mosquitoes plummets.

But mosquitoes pollinate the poor monkeyface orchid. So millions of humans have to die to keep a flower from possibly (not surely) becoming extinct.

How many people have to die before we say the insects have to die instead?

We need to kill these vectors of disease and suffering.
