GENETICALLY modified mosquitoes that were designed by scientists to help populations decrease are actually thriving.

This is according to new research that claims the plan to create gene-hacked mosquitoes that have offspring which die immediately has spectacularly backfired and now scientists don't know what will happen next.

The plan to decrease mosquitoes populations with genetically modified insects has backfired

Although the wild population did plummet for a short while, 18 months later it was right back up again.
