The "Wolbachia method" is primarily known for its use in controlling the viral diseases spread by mosquitoes, particularly dengue, Zika, and chikungunya. Wolbachia is a type of bacteria that can be introduced into mosquito populations to reduce their ability to transmit these diseases. When mosquitoes carrying Wolbachia mate with wild mosquitoes, it leads to the production of non-viable offspring, thereby reducing the overall mosquito population and the spread of diseases.
