Dov Borovsky, professor with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, has developed a diet pill for mosquitoes that makes them starve to death. Holding a genetic model in his Vero Beach laboratory, Monday 12/1, Borovsky says the pill could be on the market next year and “may start a mosquito famine.” The diet pill, ten years in development, is expected to revolutionize control of mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases worldwide.
