Mosquitoes are a big part of the food web... it will alter it enough so that mosquitoes and other pests predators will diminish a lot and we will have a lot more problems next year. So they will need to release more and more and more, they will take the state has hostage and always asking for more money.

Before too many people start talking about unintended consequences of messing with genetics this has already been done a few times already.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.com/news/amp/magazine-35408835

The article is from 2016 and mentions how the same company already released genetically modified mosquitoes in the Cayman islands, which saw a 96% population reduction, and a location in Brazil, that saw a 92% population reduction.  

Whether this should be done or not is debatable but doing it has proven to be safe.
