Get Rid of Mosquitos
Mosquitos SUCK! Literally, figuratively, in every way possible. Did you know that mosquitos are the most deadly animal in the world!? As annoying as the bloodsucking buggers are, they are still an important part of our eco system. Even though their predators (Centipedes, spiders, bats) are not the most favorable, if mosquitos ceased to exist, many species of birds would be forced to adapt. Many scientists believe that if we got rid of all the mosquitos another insect would fill their void and humans would be better off. Getting rid of mosquitos would mean that 1,000,000 people/year would not be exposed to deadly diseases.
