based Dengue Control Laboratory was established here at Government College University, Lahore with a grant of Rs.
Researchers harnessed two population control methods: the use of radiation -- which effectively sterilises mosquitoes -- and a strain of bacteria called Wolbachia
that leaves mosquito eggs dead on arrival.
The mosquito control strategy hinges on bacteria called Wolbachia
, which can affect the reproductive biology of mosquitoes, said Peter Armbruster, a professor of biology at Georgetown University, in Washington, D.C.

, a microbe that was first discovered in 1924, is one player that makes multiple guest appearances.
Researchers in Australia bred and sterilized 20 million of the male mosquitoes by injecting a bacteria known as Wolbachia
. The sterile males were released in three towns on the Cassowary Coast.
