Florida using drones to find mosquitoes
(KPLR) – Officials in the Florida Keys are testing a high-tech way to kill mosquitoes.
They’re using a small drone to locate mosquito breeding grounds in many unpopulated areas.
The Florida Keys Mosquito Control District is trying to determine if the drone can locate puddles that contain mosquito larvae.
The challenge will be to see if it can be launched quickly enough after a rainfall to give mosquito-control workers a heads-up on spots that need to be treated.
