Mosquitoes Release Billionaires

So, we have Bill Gates releasing a jar of mosquitoes at a meeting to promote the awareness of Malaria. We are told that the mosquitoes did not carry Malaria; that’s like releasing a bag of rattlesnakes that have their poison sacks removed. They still bite and breed. I hope that the mosquitoes were native to the area, otherwise, he might be introducing a sub species into a different environment. Wouldn't it have been better to release a few hummingbirds or a mosquito eating fish?
