If this went on a large scale we would probably have those media/scientist comments starting about "this laser causes cancer" or "being in the vicinity of this laser can cause birth defects" or some dumb garbage.

I'd go with it probably not being a good idea to take a chunk out of the ecosystem randomly and watching what happens. I'm not really an environmentalist, but damn that is a stupid idea lol.

Although I think it's engaget that put the killing all the mosquito idea down, not the guys who want to use this laser.

If it were portable, I would take it with me to Taiwan. There's tons of mosquitos there. My body was covered in bites and I couldn't itch them. Apparently they like foreign meat since neither my parents or family who were Taiwan natives were stung the entire trip. I think most of the world can live without mosquitos.

We should probably be regretting it now. The fact that we aren't means there is something drastically wrong with (most of) us. If there's one thing humans are good at its coming up with inventive ways of killing other creatures

PETA members must like West Nile Virus and being itchy during those awesome summer nights.

PETA does not care about mosquitoes. Scientists have been doing a bunch experiments on mosquitoes and fruit flies for decades since animal activists do not care at all about these bugs.

I must have one, neigh, ten of these!

Also, lots of shooping of whoops going on in the world these past few days. First the USAF downs a missile with a megawatt-class laser, and now a laser 'skeeter cooker.

That's precisely what this thing is, dude.
