Starting tomorrow (Thursday 14 July) Cayman is expected to have its first batch of genetically modified mosquitoes unleashed in an effort to combat disease carrying Aedes Egypti species.

The Mosquito Research and Control Unit (MRCU) says it’s spent months formulating a plan for Zika’s arrival on our shores and now it’s time to move on releasing the mutant mosquitoes in West Bay.

Tomorrow’s expected release will largely depend on the weather cooperating.

The MRCU says it believes this is the best way to go to battle with those mosquitoes that carry diseases like dengue, chikingunya and zika.
