Not only are they out of control with changing weather patterns, they are legions of little carriers for diseases like chikungunya virus, dengue, lyme and more. What are the implications of the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes into the wild? We’ll never know.

At any rate, you can safely collect them and keep them from your family, friends and pets without needing a biochem suit.

Head over to the video description or his website to see the solar powered option, more instructions, important safety tips and other backyard science projects for more self-sufficient living.
