Release of male Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with Wolbachia, when repeated and in large enough numbers, can suppress a local population of biting Ae. aegypti females. The Wolbachia bacteria interferes with the mosquitoes’ reproductive process, leading to egg-hatch failure. (Photo credit: Consolidated Mosquito Control District)
