H. Schriber,  Deseret News,  2020.

Florida officials plan to release 750 million genetically modified mosquitoes into the Florida Keys over the next two years as a way to prevent diseases like the Zika virus.
The project will begin in 2021.
The Environment Protection Agency approved the idea in May.
The project will test if one of these mosquitoes can work better than spraying insecticides to stop these insects from spreading potentially fatal viruses, according to CNN.
