The Mosquito Problem
"…estimates that mosquitoes have killed more people than any other single cause— fifty-two billion of us, nearly half of all humans who have ever lived."

Mosquitoes are vectors of multiple diseases around the world, including Malaria, Dengue fever, Zika virus, etc. Mosquitoes were declared as one of the biggest threats to public health by WHO (World Health Organization). Most of these diseases have no vaccine or effective treatment. Hence, the preferable method today is pest control, but the available solutions are not effective enough. The figure below shows the death rates by mosquito-borne diseases world-wide per year.

Our Goal:

Create a better delivery system for biological pest control
