    taken from the report...

    In case you’re imagining drones shooting lasers, the flying robots will be equipped with infrared cameras to locate areas where mosquitoes like to socialize, such as shallow-water pools. Once those places are targeted a ground team will swoop in to obliterate the mosquitoes with poison.

    As a former resident of FL, I can tell you that water is everywhere. Over here, over there.

    If I see a drone I'm shooting it down. :fil:

    What about the poisonous frogs? Shouldn't they be hunting those too?

    Why don't they just drop in 100 dragonflies? They'll obliterate the mosquito population and leave no poison behind.

    Stupid people. :facepalm:

    What I don't understand is, considering the nature of the climate and that mosquitoes are always gonna be a given, why don't they start breeding dragonflies now? They can take several years to mature but the skeeters aren't going anywhere.

    So dumb. It's like having a problem in your yard with scorching sunlight. PLANT A FUCKING TREE! :pissed:
