The California Department of Pesticide Regulation just received an application from the biotechnology company Oxitec to release genetically engineered mosquitoes in California.

Oxitec claims they’re trying to combat diseases like Dengue, yellow fever, chikungunya, and Zika, but there’s no evidence that those diseases have ever originated in California.

Even worse: Studies show experiments like this one could result in hybrid mosquitoes that are more aggressive and more resistant to insecticides.

Tell the California Department of Pesticide Regulation to deny Oxitec’s application to treat California as a laboratory for their GMO mosquito science experiment!
