How Does Wolbachia-Aedes Suppression Technology Work?

Mating Competitiveness

Can our lab-reared Wolbachia-Aedes males compete with urban males for female mosquitoes?

To achieve suppression, the male Wolbachia-Aedes mosquitoes we release must be able to compete with urban males for female mates. Read on to find out how we ensure that Wolbachia does not affect the mating competitiveness of our Wolbachia-Aedes males.
