In brief: Creates Problems

The products used to kill the mosquitoes also kill off beneficial insects setting in motion some disastrous results in the past that caused more harm than good.
Pesticide resistance has been another issue. Nonetheless this has been one approach that still has merit and many programs are in play internationally. The eventual ramifications remain to be seen.
