    Mike,
    De-lurking here. This may be a stupid question, but with regard to the dengue fever-carrying mosquitoes:

    If they introduce an insecticide-resistance gene along with the Wolbachia bacteria, which effectively keeps the mosquito from being able to transmit dengue and malaria, wouldn’t that then allow the mosquito to be 1) resistant to insecticides (duh) and 2) able to survive to transmit some other disease to humans that the Wolbachia bacteria doesn’t stop.

    Thanks!
