Why Don't We Just Kill All Mosquitos?

Josh Welch

MosquitoWhy don't we just kill all mosquitos? I know I have thought it before, as I am sure lots of people have.

They carry all kinds of nasty diseases like Malaria, Yellow Fever, Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika. It would seem like we would be doing the world a favor if we just eliminated them entirely, right?

Honestly, it doesn't seem like anyone or anything would really miss them...or would they?

This video by SciShow explores what would happen if we actually did get rid of them, as well as some other (more reasonable) ways to fix the problem.
